Photos from Metallica’s Performance at Cincinnati’s U.S. Bank Arena


Metallica rocked U.S. Bank Arena and 16,000 heavy metal fans on Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019.  The sub-zero temperatures didn't keep this band of 38 years from putting on a 2+ hour long performance that mixed songs from their newest album, Hardwired... to Self-Destruct as well as favorites like ...And Justice For All and Master Of Puppets.  During "Moth Info Flame," a song from the new album, dozens of small lighted drones took to the air and performed intricate maneuvers above the stage.  The show opener was Jim Breuer, an American stand-up comedian and self-professed Metallica fan.
