Live review: Metallica at the O2 Arena, 15/09/08

Tickets for the Death Magnetic launch party proved to be £5 well spent!

The day after playing one of their smallest gigs in years at the BBC Radio Theatre, Metallica rocked London's O2 Arena on 15 September 2008 with a set that drew heavily from their new album Death Magnetic as well as including an assortment of classics.

Guitarist magazine's senior staff writer Rob Laing was on hand to witness a Metallica performance that proved beyond doubt that "27 years on from their formation this band have still got balls."
