I bought standing tickets for both of Metallica’s London O2 Arena shows the moment they were released. I knew the sets would be different each night, and I could probably go to a dozen Metallica shows in a row and not get bored. Sunday’s show was amazing so topping it tonight was going to be tough.
I went with two of my oldest friends, one of whom paid a fortune for a meet and greet. Not jealous, not jealous at all! So having queued since late morning, we got a great front row spot for the show. It was even better than Sunday and I came away with so many photos from my little Sony RX100 and I was blown away with how well it coped with the lighting conditions. You can’t necessarily tell, but this photo is pin sharp – you can see Kirk’s eyelashes!
I couldn’t have asked for more from the night. Great company, arguably the best band in the world, a perfect spot in the crowd, a ton of photos and to top it all off, I got a selfie with Lars as he left the stage!
