What an an amazing night for the first show of this European Vacation! 60,000 crazy fans filled the Veltins Arena tonight. There was barely enough room to mosh! Members of Anthrax and Megadeth joined Metallica on stage (Slayer had to catch a plane) for the encore jam of Helpless! And for the first time since I don't know when..... Nothing Else Matters was NOT played in a regular 18 song set. Full setlist is up, pics to come!
