Express: Metallica at Twickenham Stadium LIVE review: Masterclass in metal as titans smash London
“Do you still like Metallica?” James Hetfield playfully asks a sold-out Twickenham Stadium. The faces of 80,000 ecstatic metal fans roar at him and launch their arms into the air, their sweaty faces and a sea of black t-shirts projected onto five gigantic screens behind the California thrashers. As the audience - or ‘Metallica family’ as they are affectionately known by the band - scream back in excitement, I think the answer is crystal clear. Of course the question itself was never really a serious one; their status as heavy metal titans and reputation for shredding apart the biggest venues is seldom ever pulled into doubt.
