METALLICA At Australia's SOUNDWAVE Festival: Brisbane Setlist Revealed

The Soundwave festival kicked off earlier tonight (Saturday, February 23), with headliners METALLICA performing an 18-song set spanning the band's entire 30-year recording career.

METALLICA opened the show with "Hit The Lights" and "Master Of Puppets" and finished with "Enter Sandman" before returning for a massive encore featuring "Creeping Death", "Battery" and "Seek & Destroy".

The band's setlist was as follows:

01. Hit The Lights
02. Master Of Puppets
03. The Shortest Straw
04. Harvester Of Sorrow
05. Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
06. Fuel
07. Cyanide
08. Sad But True
09. Fade To Black
10. …And Justice For All
11. One
12. For Whom The Bell Tolls
13. Blackened
14. Nothing Else Matters
15. Enter Sandman

Encore:

16. Creeping Death
17. Battery
18. Seek & Destroy

It was previously reported that METALLICA would play a two-hour set at this year's Soundwave, complete with the "Snakepit" rig.

The last time this rig was used was during METALLICA's 2012 European tour where the band's self-titled 1991 album was played backwards, starting with closing number "The Struggle Within" and ending with "Enter Sandman".

The San Francisco Giants recently announced that METALLICA will throw out the first pitch and perform the National Anthem at the world champion baseball team's May 3 home game at AT&T Park, which will be dubbed Metallica Night. The Giants will be playing against the Los Angeles Dodgers that night. METALLICA was originally formed in L.A. in 1981 but moved to San Francisco the following year to recruit bassist Cliff Burton and be part of that city's heavier underground metal scene.

METALLICA has a busy year ahead. The night before the Giants game, on May 2, the band will receive the Ronnie James Dio Lifetime Achievement Award and perform at the fifth annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles. The band is also staging the second edition of its Orion Music + More festival on June 8-9 in Detroit, and will release a 3D film called "Metallica Through The Never" on August 9.
