Metallica have returned to touring by returning to their roots, playing surprise shows at very small capacity clubs. They played a hometown show at San Francisco's Independent last week, and on Monday night (9/20) surprised Chicago with a show at 1000-cap club Metro, which they hadn't played since 1983. Tickets, which cost $19.83, were only available at the box office, and, unsurprisingly, a massive line formed outside the club with thousands hoping to score a ticket.
Those who got in were treated to a 16-song set including “Master of Puppets," "Whiplash," “Ride the Lightning,” “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” "One," and more, wrapping things up with an encore featuring “Hardwired," “Fuel,” and "Seek and Destroy."
