What Can We Expect from Metallica on Sunday?
What a night. Metallica hit Detroit’s Ford Field on Friday (Nov. 10), and they didn’t disappoint. This tour has actually been going on since August, so Detroit had to wait several months to get it, but it was worth the wait. This was the best Metallica shows I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen them three times (four, if you count their surprise short set at Orion). Now, let’s get ready for night two, which takes place on Sunday (Nov. 12). So, what can we expect from Metallica on Sunday?
As aforementioned, Metallica’s Detroit weekend is actually the 2023 finale of their M72 World Tour. It’s the last date of the current leg of this legendary trek, so expect Sunday to bring some extra special moments between the guys. That final show is always something unique, that simply can’t be replicated. So, I’m expected some touching onstage banter between the members of Metallica. Oh, and hopefully some shout-outs to the Lions, since they’ll be playing on Sunday.
The trek is very unique, because it has Metallica doing a “No Repeat Weekend,” with Friday’s set list totally different from what the band will play on Sunday. What’s more, there are different opening acts. While Friday brought Mammoth WVH and Pantera, Sunday will offer Five Finger Death Punch and Ice Nine Kills. Song-wise, some of the biggest songs left off Friday’s set list included “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” “One,” “Enter Sandman” and “If Darkness Had a Son,” to name a few. I would expect to hear all of those tracks on Sunday. Also, there’s a chance the guys might throw in something surprising, since it’s their send off. One thing is for sure: It’s been really special having Metallica in the Motor City this week and weekend. Find what you need to know about Sunday’s shows here.
