BBC Radio Theatre 2008 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the BBC Radio Theatre, London, September 14, 2008. Very good FM broadcast.

With their ninth studio album, Death Magnetic, just off the starting block, Metallica are still trying to show they are a vital force in metal.

As Simon Price wrote in UK’s Independent when Metallica played at the O2 Arena on September 15, “In concert Metallica are, undeniably, an awesome animal. Every song chugs with the unforgiving, unrelenting unstoppability of some great machine, perhaps the ones that lay tarmac on the motorway. What they aren’t, however, are great lyricists.”

Thanks to chichi69 for sharing this broadcast on the internet and for the artwork. Thanks also to greetfunky for additional art.

chichi69 noted: “This is the full set. There is a slight drop-out/skip during ‘The End Of The Line’ at 6:15.” However, that drop-out/skip has been corrected in this version.

1. That Was Just Your Life
2. The End of the Line
3. Until it Sleeps
4. Broken Beat & Scarred
5. Cyanide
6. Frantic
7. For Whom the Bell Tolls
8. The Day That Never Comes

  2. 1000 Thank You’s!!!
    You guys are truly the best!

    This show is awesome! I listened to it when it was first broadcast last week. I even sent you all a request for this… thank you so much for making it happen.

    Metallica seems to truly be rejuvenated! I have over 100 Metallica bootlegs going all the way back to 1982, this will have to be among the top of the crop.

    This show will age gracefully, as will the new DEATH MAGNETIC cd… .GO BUY IT TODAY!!!

    Thank you again BIG O.
