    Prices for Soldier Field show say prices are between $55-155. That doesn't seem too bad for a band like Metallica.

    Edit - Do they change up the setlist much on tours?

    I've always found they generally hit the staples on every tour, and sub out a handful of songs from whatever album they're touring for. The standard thing most bands do.

    I think I'm gonna pass though. It's a stadium show, and going to Vancouver requires me to burn vacation days (especially as its on a Mondy) :( I am disappointed in the trend of the remaining big rock bands gravitating to stadium shows :( I guess there's less and less of these big bands left touring, so the demand for tickets keeps going up. Especially as the bulk of the audience seeing them are in their peak earning years and can afford tickets.

    Ahhh, gotcha. $160 is a bit high, but sounds like they're giving the best seats to the fan club which is pretty cool.

    Weird Al has done it as well.

    weird al never did it. for mandatory fun he put out like a video day for six of the songs but not the whole album.
    I think Tegan and Sara did for their last album. Or atleast a big chunk of the album.

    I've never cared for Metallica (except for the S&M album) but now seeing Creeping Death live is on my bucket list.

    I'm animating all evenings and having Metallica live blasting in the headphones is great.
    They opened with Creeping Death in Vancouver for the Full Arsenal tour.
    It was epic!
    I'm thinking about going to the Vancouver show in august but it's right before a music festival in Tofino I'm attending.
    Tough call

    Edit - Do they change up the setlist much on tours?

    Unfortunately not really. I only saw them switch it up real good back in '04. They played philyl twice in a row and it was a completely different setlist which i was surprised. Last time i saw them was at the first Orion Music festival in AC> While it was good they didn't mix it up too much with the exception of playing Ride the Lightning and the Black album in it's entirety. They ended with one and seek and destroy both nights. and started with hit the lights and master both nights. come on, they could have mixed it up a little more.

    I'll be going to the philly show :smiley:

    I'm passing :( I think it's the first Metallica tour in a while I'm passing on. This new fangled thing with big bands playing Stadiums for insanely expensive prices isn't great. I'm a legacy metclub member so I just pulled up GA tickets for Vancouver, but a Stadium floor is huge if there's no pit section at the front :( After fee's it's over $200/ticket. Not that they're the only ones charging that, but I'm finding myself not willing to pay that much for a band I've already seen 4 times, and all 4 times in an arenas for less money. Paying through the nose for a stadium experience... I guess I found my line :(
  • I'm not going either Zod.

    Too much money. Too big a venue. I just saw them in Van when they filmed the movie and I saw them two years ago in Vegas at Rock in Rio.

    Kinda bummed. But I'm not paying the money they want.

  • Had the presale all lined up but 200+ per ticket is not happening. Im cool witth the cheapest nodebleeds i can find later on

    I've never seen Metallica before and yeah the prices are very high, but we decided to go since it might be our only time to see them. I tried for San Antonio and couldn't get reserved seats so I settled for the floor. I'm very short so I really hate floor seats, but I'll manage.
  • pjsteelerfanpjsteelerfan MarylandPosts: 9,358
    I'm going to Baltimore. Think it has been 10 years since I last saw them, and they almost never play North America any more so sucked it up this time.

  • Never been. Buddy scored me a field seat at Soldier. U live once. Buy the [email protected] ticket.
    Thanks CUHA!

    Never seen them so I'm certainly not passing on this opportunity. Especially since the show is only 20 minutes from my house. Got the Unforgiven ticket package today for Atlanta.

    Anybody have foxbourgh seats and want to trade for GA?
  • ZodZod Posts: 6,098
    I will say given by how many non-pj shows I've been too last year and this year, they're sub $100 ticket prices seem insanely cheap compared to what their peers are charging. Metallica, U2 (except for floor seats), Elton John, Guns N' Roses... they're all pushing or exceeding $200 these days.... I thought it was bad a few years back when ticket prices were pushing $100 :(

    I have never seen Metallica before and have been wanting to see them for a long time. I don't think they've played NC since 2004 and I had to miss that show. I did the cheapest VIP GA for Atlanta which came to $260. Regular fan club GA was $210 after fees. Figured it was worth the $50 more for the poster, merch item and separate entrance. Can't wait to check out the new stadium as well

    2004 was at the old Charlotte Coliseum. They played Time Warner Cable Arena on October 18, 2009 (My older brothers first Metallica show). In 2000 they played at Rockingham Speedway with Korn.

    Enjoy your first Metallica show. :rock_on:

    I did the $249 VIP package for St. Louis... What the hell... haven't seen them yet and I'm excited to see Volbeat again.

    Last saw them when they did the Big 4 at Yankee Stadium but before that it had to be in the late 90's. I'm looking forward to the show, got GA at MetLife.

    I do not...But you can try and contact ticket Master about switching if they still have seats. May need to wait til the general on sale though. Ticketmaster has an exchange policy. I was able to upgrade my gnr seats for pit last year in Philly. Foxborough might not participate in it but it's worth a shot. Good luck!

    They were bought off the Fan Club sale, means ticketbastard has nothing to do with them. They would need to contact TicketsToday, and see if they'll switch them out, if any are still available. [email protected] 1-800-594-8499

    Saw them in 06 and 09 but not interested in a stadium show so not going this time. They put on a hell of a show so if you haven't seen them I highly recommend going. Hoping they play some arena shows later in the year.

    Duh good call. I forgot about the fan club presale. Got mine with the Citi one on ticketmaster.
