SHOW NOTES
This was the 17th show that Metallica performed in 2012.

This was the first of two shows at Orion Music + More, which is a festival curated by Metallica themselves.

This was the first time that Metallica performed in Atlantic City, NJ.

This was the first time that Ride the Lightning was performed in its entirety.

This was the first time that "The Call of Ktulu" was performed in New Jersey. This was the fourth performance of the song in the US over the last 10 years.

This was only the second time that "Creeping Death" was performed in 2012.

It took 28 years but the "song that we never wanted to play live" finally made the setlist. "Escape" was debuted for the first time ever.

This was only the seventh time that "Trapped Under Ice" was performed in the US.

This was the first time that "Fade to Black" was played in 2012.

Metallica performed 18 songs off of five albums and one EP: Kill 'Em All (3), Ride the Lightning (8), Master of Puppets (2), The Black Album (3), ...And Justice for All (1), Beyond Magnetic (1)
