Print Back Archive

Official MetOnTour video recap of METALLICA's August 25 concert at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia can be seen below. The 20-minute clip includes a tuning-room segment, the pre-show huddle and "Cyanide" from the concert. The band's setlist was as follows: 01. Hit The Lights 02. Master Of Puppets 03. Fuel 04. Ride The Lightning 05. Fade To Black 06. The Four Horsemen 07. Cyanide 08. Welcome Home (Sanitarium) 09. Sad But True 10. Orion 11. One 12. For Whom The Bell Tolls 13. Blackened 14. Nothing Else Matters 15. Enter Sandman Encore: 16. Creeping Death 17. Fight Fire With Fire 18. Seek & Destroy The governor of Jakarta, Indonesia, Joko Widodo, attended the concert in the city — 25 years to the day after the release of the band's fourth album, "…And Justice For All", and more than 20 years after their tumultuous first show in Indonesia. "I am happy and satisfied with the concert," Widodo said after the show. "No one got out of control. We showed them that Jakarta citizens are all dignified. We could rock the night away in an orderly fashion." 60,000 Indonesian metal fans attended the concert, where more than 2,000 security personnel were deployed. METALLICA's last show in Indonesia took place in 1993 — at the peak of the band's commercial popularity while they were on the road supporting the mega-selling "black" album. One of the biggest shows that Indonesia had ever hosted, it ended with a riot that saw angry fans — many of whom were trying to get into the concert for free — burning cars and destroying public property, as well as sustaining countless physical injuries while fighting with the police. Back in May, Widodo had to turn over his autographed METALLICA bass guitar to the government temporarily, while authorities determined whether the instrument was merely a gift or a violation of ethics rules. Widodo received the bass from METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo, but had to give it up to the state within 30 days, according to laws regarding gifts to state officials.
