Quick guide for the search

  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

My friend told me, that the key to a good Metallica show is to drink a lot of tapped beers and shout at Lars - that sounds lovely icon_biggrin.gif

The last setlist I could find was from Johannesburg april 27th. Seems that they are pleasing us non-Metallica fans more keen on greatest hits party than their later stuff.

The Ecstasy of Gold (Ennio Morricone song)
1.Hit the Lights
2.Master of Puppets
3.Ride the Lightning
4.Harvester of Sorrow
5.Fade to Black
6.The Memory Remains
8.Sad but True
9.Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
12.For Whom the Bell Tolls
14.Nothing Else Matters
15.Enter Sandman
16.Creeping Death
18. Seek & Destroy

They should play the entire Kill Em All, since it's the 30th anniversery of the album, now that would be awesome!!!... Or at least add Whiplash and Metal Militia to that awesome setlist... And maybe Frayed ends of sanity icon_cool.gif

When do you start getting in line if you want to be in the pit? icon_razz.gif Are we talking at least 10 hours before the show?

If it takes 16 to be front row, I'll arrive 16 hours before Metallica enter the Orange Stage! icon_wink.gif

Often at Roskilde you can meet up just before the show and still get a place in the pits. With Metallica it'll be a bit harder, but you won't have to be there 16 hours before! I think I'll probably get a few beers and sit in the queue a couple of hours before the pits are opening just to be sure to get a good spot.
If you're not that bothered about being in the front row, don't bother spending all day in line. It can be just as good, if not better, a bit further back in the front pit, or at the front of the second pit.

Often when you come to the queue it'll look extremely long. The first few times I thought there was no way I'd get a place, but you'd be surprised at how many people they actually can fit in the pits.

Thanks for the quick answer. icon_smile.gif

I'm not a Roskilde rookie, so I do know that you can get a great spot without waiting in line for several hours. I just don't want a good spot - I want the spot. icon_wink.gif

I've never waited in line for more than 4 hours at Roskilde (concert-wise). You could probably get in the pit for Metallica by arriving 4 hours before the show, but I don't just want to get in the pit, so... icon_razz.gif

Ah, in that case yeah, I'd get in the queue in the morning and drink beer all day in the queueicon_wink.gif Although I've never done it myself at Roskilde

I spent the entire day in line for Prince a couple of years ago, and it was grat fun icon_smile.gif

Orange Stage front row sucks anyway. Stood front row at the Muse concert in 2007, and couldn't see a thing!

Agreed! At the Machine Head-concert I somehow managed to get to the front row. Could barely see the drummer and the lead guitarist

I've been at that spot at Metallica two times before, and its a lot of fun! icon_biggrin.gif Last time I saw them I arrived pretty late, but despite 40,000 people I managed to crawl my way into the front pit icon_smile.gif Metalheads are nice people! (it might help to be 1,5m tall, though..)
If you're happy with being in a pit, just wait for like three songs, and a lot of people will suddenly realize that they belong further back icon_razz.gif I'll be heading for the second pit, any closer to the stage and I can't see anything at all.
