Rolling Stone: Metallica Bridge Past and Future at Electrifying Club Gig
When Metallica took the stage at New York City's Webster Hall, a venue that's minuscule by Metallica standards with a capacity of 1,500, they simply walked on. There was no intro video. They did not play their trademark Spaghetti Western opening music. They didn't even have an opening band. The guitar techs were in plain sight on the sides of the stage. They were simply four unassuming guys, ready to rock.
