    Saw Metallica in Hilton in '04. Well worth the money.

    I saw them at Hilton about 4 years ago now. Not worth the time or money.

    Edit: Haha. I think C&G and I disagree on this one.

    Unfortunately, it hasn't been 1990 for 18 years or so now.

    I saw them at Hilton as well 4 or so years ago. Huge fan, but that conert was shameful. The Parquet was barely full, balcony wasn't even touched.

    Now I saw them at Hawthorn Race Track in Chicago, now that was a good concert.

    While they haven't had a great album since 1989 (new one comes out September 12th), they can still put on a good show.

    So was the performance bad or just the attendance? I saw them in Moline in '04 and thought they were great.

    Since I enjoy the songs, the band played well. But since the crowd sucked, I couldn't blame the bad for a bad concert. Its hard to get energized when it seems like your playing for a cocktail party.

    They just need to remember that they haven't written any good material since 1995 or so and then they'd be fine.

    They tried to push all their new crap when everyone clearly wanted the old. Maybe one of their better songs was played.

    Will the attendance be any better for this concert? It seems to me they're just another four years older, and playing in a more expensive venue. I bet they'll have trouble filling Wells Fargo halfway.
