Metallica Copenhell 2022 Setlist Return Of Monsters
Metallica kicks off their European tour with a monster of a ranked list
It’s easy to assume we know exactly what we’re going to get when it comes to seeing veteran rock and metal bands live. Many are content to go through the motions, playing the same old territories every single year, pumping out the same, standard greatest hits set to tick boxes and make sure everyone goes home happy.
Metallica, it seems, are just not one of those bands. Last night, the biggest band in heavy metal played a homecoming show of sorts for their Danish drummer and co-founder Lars Ulrich, rocking up to Copenhagen to headline the first night of the city’s four-day Copenhell festival.
The gig was Metallica’s first back in Europe since the pre-pandemic era, and the Four Horsemen were clearly in no mood to fuck about, pulling out one of their most unique and career-spanning setlists of recent times.
Metallica attracts tens of thousands of metal fans to Hockenheim
American band Metallica held their only concert in Germany on Friday at the nearly sold-out Hockheimring. According to the organizer, 65,000 of the 70,000 tickets may have been sold by Friday afternoon. Four musicians from San Francisco were accompanied on two stages at “Download Germany Festival” by international rock and metal bands such as Sabaton, Five Finger Death Punch and Enter Shikari.
Metallica last performed in Germany in 2019. The band is widely known through the personal ballad “Nothing Else Matters” by conductor James Hetfield. When this song was played on Friday night, the sky at Hockenheimring was pink and purple and the stage was green. There were also a few children in the crowded audience. Hetfield – black jeans, black t-shirt – interacts a lot with fans.
The band, formed in 1981, is one of the most successful bands in the metal industry and has sold over 110 million albums to date. The next stop on Metallica’s world tour is Hellfest in Clisson, France, not far from Nantes.
Many international greats such as the Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Genesis and AC/DC took to the stage at Hockenheim (Rhein-Neckar district). In July 2023 Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band will hold an outdoor concert at the Hockenheimring.
How Is James Hetfield?
A year later, drummer Lars Ulrich (58 years old) talked about the state of health of his colleague. As reported by “New Musical Express,” among others, he told fan club magazine “So What!” That Hetfield had “some problems” in September 2019. Now, a year later, he and the band are doing “well”.
What about James Hetfield right before the show in Germany in 2022? In mid-May, at a concert in Brazil, he said he felt “unsafe” before stepping on stage. “I have to tell you I wasn’t very well before I got here,” he openly admitted, as seen in a fan video. “I felt a little insecure, like I was an old man who couldn’t play anymore.” His bandmates would help him: “They hugged me and said, ‘Hey, if you’re having trouble on stage, we’ll support you.’ I’m telling you, it means the whole world to me.”
