Metallica in Hong Kong for the First Time
Posted on January 31 2017
Metallica thrillingly hit the ground running in 2017 with its WorldWired tour dates in Asia and returned with its very first performance in Hong Kong! Thirty-five years and still beyond psyched to go to new frontiers, Metallica left a very special night on fire as it hit the stage at the AsiaWorld-Expo on January 20, 2017.
With "Hardwired" as the opening, all six songs off from the album Hardwired... To Self-Destruct appeared in a single setlist. The show also engaged the audience with the song "Confusion," which was the second time it was ever played live. Metallica performed 18 songs in total, including 1 from Kill 'Em All, 3 from Ride the Lightning, 2 from Master of Puppets, 1 from Justice for All, 5 from Metallica, and of course, all 6 from Hardwired.. To Self-Destruct.
You can pre-order the show on CD here: Live Metallica: Chek Lap Kok, Hong Kong - January 20, 2017 (2CD). Expected delivery date is February 20th 2017.
