Metallica has rescheduled the second night of its No Repeat Weekend at State Farm Stadium in Glendale after cutting Friday’s concert short by two songs.
The concert scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 3, will now be Saturday, Sept. 9.
Metallica released a statement saying, “Metallica is very sorry to report that tomorrow’s scheduled M72 date at State Farm Stadium in Glendale AZ has been postponed to Saturday, September 9, 2023, as unfortunately Covid has caught up with James Hetfield.”
The band members, it added, “are extremely disappointed and regret any inconvenience this has caused; they look forward to returning to complete the M72 no repeat weekend in Glendale next Saturday.”
What happened to Metallica on Friday night at State Farm Stadium
Metallica has been playing 16 songs every opening night since this tour hit the States, following “Seek & Destroy” with a set-closing “Master of Puppets.”
Fans at State Farm Stadium got 14 songs and no “Master of Puppets.” As we noted in our full review, “Normally, I hesitate to overuse a word as ripe for overuse as ‘tragedy.’ But what else would you call it?”
