Metallica at Nassau Coliseum

POST #    964

Last night, I hit up the Metallica concert at Nassau Coliseum with Johnny and Mike. I had a fourth ticket, but unfortunately had to eat it. That aside, it was a great concert. Also a very, very loud concert. It wasn't so much the music that was really loud, but more that the pyrotechnics were loud and somewhat jarring at times.

For such an old band (age wise), Metallica sure knows how to "rock-out". JK points out that the set list was very old school, possibly the oldest school he's heard. The band was into it, the crowd was into it, both were into each other. Metallica should learn that lasers that are supposed to do things on the ceiling of the arena don't do well if there are rafters and the such.

Four Five things for me to keep note of if I go to another Metallica concert at Nassau:
- Grow hair out and get lots of tattoos
- Shave head and get lots of tattoos
- Learn a few more Metallica songs
- Start believing in the phrase, "Long Island, strong island!"
- Get Metallica hockey jersey to sport at concert

What a strange set of shows I've been to in the past week - N*E*R*D/Black Eyed Peas, Quannum World Tour, and now Metallica.

They mention anything about Napster?

Strong Island, yo! Goodness, I haven't heard that phrase in a while. Did you see all of the hoochie mamas with big hair still stuck in the 1989-metal head world? I went to school with all of them. I'll show you the yearbooks.

whatisee - no mention of napster. but they did say something about buying their cds. i thought it would be funny if they joked about downloading them.

corie - there was some hair action, but not too much. i'll have to take a look at those yearbooks though. that would certainly be a trip.

One day I will create a star map of mullet/1980's hair/lifestyle sightings on LI.

yes corie, you must do that. shove that school research aside and do a map of mullets.

Tien, how could you got to a concert on Long Island? I'm very troubled by this. Could it be that things are not as bad there as you imply?

no no, nassau coliseum was pretty crappy. it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere, with nothing else to do around it. and metallica didn't come into nyc.
