Metallica wraps up its Detroit doubleheader at Ford Field: 5 takeaways
Posted: November 13, 2023 | Last updated: November 13, 2023
Metallica roared back into Ford Field on Sunday to play the second of two Detroit shows as the band capped the 2023 portion of its M72 World Tour.
Here are some takeaways from a weekend visit that also included a sold-out Friday concert :
The 'No Repeat Weekend' concept was a gamble, and a hit
Start the day smarter. Get all the news you need in your inbox each morning.
Fans who attended both Ford Field shows — and there were plenty of those folks — got 32 songs and more than four hours of stadium-shaking entertainment.
The M72 tour premise is simple but unconventional: Two nights, two distinct set lists. And it turned out to be a blast, with Friday and Sunday offering their own variations on Metallica’s catalog of blistering, multitextured, turn-on-a-dime work.
While the songs were different, there was a similar structure and flow to the two nights, each of which featured 16 songs and reserved the same slots for new material, deep cuts and one instrumental, along with an epic opening and finale.
Sunday’s show kicked off by reaching back to the very start with a performance of the band’s frenetic 1983 debut single, “Whiplash.” It was promptly followed by two more early standouts — “For Whom the Bell Tolls” and “Ride the Lightning” — on the way to a two-hour-plus affair that ultimately closed with the crowd-pleasing punch of “One” and “Enter Sandman.”
“Dirty Window,” from the band’s much-derided 2003 release “St. Anger” (“your favorite album,” James Hetfield cracked from the stage), was a left-field highlight on a night that also included “Welcome Home (Sanitarium),” “The Unforgiven” and “Wherever I May Roam.”
All told, between the two shows, Detroit concertgoers got a big helping of “Ride the Lightning”: Six of the eight tracks from that game-changing thrash record were in the weekend mix.
The production was top-notch
Metallica shows have long been state-of-the-art, but the M72 World Tour tried a few new things, most notably an in-the-round presentation that placed the band on a giant circular stage at mid-floor.
The lighting was reliably spectacular — including brilliant displays beamed from all four corners of the stadium — and a festive touch came from the giant yellow-and-black beach balls that descended onto the crowd late in the night. Only the pyro was scaled back here, likely because of the unique stage setup.
And the sound, at least on Ford Field’s lower level, was first-rate for a stadium rock concert, where audio is often erratic. Metallica’s two shows were richly mixed and there were moments the music took on a 360° effect.
The band is still vital
All four Metallica members are either in or fast approaching their 60s, but the group is still firing on all cylinders and seems to be deeply invested in the cause.
“We do not take this for granted,” Hetfield told Friday's Detroit crowd. “Metallica has been doing this for 42 years, and we still love every second of it.”
Kirk Hammett’s spiraling, high-voltage solos, Lars Ulrich’s spirited presence at the drum kit, Robert Trujillo’s nimbly fingered bass lines, Hetfield’s commanding ringleader presence — all added up to a Metallica that’s still got it and seems to be having fun along the way. And based on the intense audience participation each night, the multigenerational fan base is right there with the group.
Some Detroit love
Like many modern bass guitarists across genres, Trujillo feels a debt to the Motor City — and to one groundbreaking musician in particular.
“I don’t know if I’d be playing bass if it wasn’t for Detroit,” he said onstage Sunday, explaining: “Motown. James Jamerson.”
For each show on this tour, Trujillo and Hammett have crafted a short, custom jam to play live. On Friday, it was a heavy ditty dubbed “Primo.” Sunday, following the Jamerson shout-out, it was a 2½-minute number they called “Motown, Yo Town” (don’t hold us to spellings here), with Hammett tacking some funky scratches atop Trujillo’s bobbing bass.
Sunday’s Detroit show was the final night on the 2023 run of the M72 World Tour, which will pick back up with European dates in the spring and return to North America in the summer.
Metallica has a deep attachment to Detroit, no doubt. And given the flexible nature of the set lists on this outing, it made sense to wonder whether a cover of Bob Seger’s “Turn the Page” — famously recorded by the band in 1998 — was in order. In the end, no such luck.
For Ford Field, an exclamation mark to a huge 2023
It has been a big year for stadium shows in Detroit: Ford Field alone hosted nine nights of star-powered music, including doubleheaders from Taylor Swift and Morgan Wallen to go with this weekend’s Metallica blowout.
Along with dates from Beyoncé, Luke Combs and Ed Sheeran (with surprise guest Eminem), it was the biggest concert year in the history of the Detroit Lions' venue, which was inaugurated by the Rolling Stones in 2002.
2024 isn’t shaping up to have quite that sort of stadium-show volume. But two years after the touring industry emerged from the pandemic shutdown, 2023 was a bona fide revival that saw ticket buyers packing the seats — with Metallica providing one loud, satisfying punctuation mark.

CMA Awards 2023: The Complete List of Winners, Including Lainey Wilson, Newly Crowned Entertainer of the Year
Luke Combs and his cover of the Tracy Chapman classic 'Fast Car' won two awards. Jelly Roll was named best new artist. But Wilson was dominant, winning album of the year and female vocalist, as well as two awards for her collaboration with Hardy.

Lainey Wilson didn’t have to wait long to win entertainer of the year, the top prize given out by the CMA Awards . In only her second year of being nominated at all, and her first year getting a nod for the biggest trophy, the rising star claimed the big kahuna. She also prevailed for album of the year, female vocalist of the year, music video of the year and music event of the year (the last two in collaboration with Hardy).
Early on, the major action from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena was around Luke Combs ‘ cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car,” which won the first two on-air awards, for single of the year and song of the year.
In a very competitive field for fresh faces, Jelly Roll won new artist of the year. In his acceptance speech, he singled out the competitor who has been the commercially successful in the category, saying, “Zach Bryan, I think you are one of the hottest things on earth, not just country music.” Continuing on in a nearly preacher-like, inspirational tone, Jelly Roll added: “There is something poetic about a 39-year-old man winning new artist of the year… What’s in front of you is so much more important than what’s behind you. Let’s party, Nashville!”
Chris Stapleton won male vocalist for the seventh time — or, as he put it, “I’ve won a couple of these,” before noting that he is “always humbled” to prevail. He thanked his wife, Morgane Stapleton, saying, “I don’t do any of this without her. Certainly don’t get any of these without her.” Stapleton mentioned two friends who died this year, including his former partner in the Steel Drivers, Mike Henderson, whom he said schooled him in the ways of songwriting.
Brothers Osborne won vocal duo of the year for a sixth time — with singer T.J. Osborne joking: “We’re shocked, honestly, every year this happens. I thought the way this was going that Lainey Wilson and Hardy were gonna win this award.” Old Dominion similarly continued to have a lock on the group of the year award, picking it up for the sixth consecutive year.
Wilson came into the awards leading all nominees, with nine. Jelly Roll has the second highest number of nominations, having picked up five. Combs and Hardy each have four nominations.
Performances for the night include Post Malone and Morgan Wallen participating in a medley of country classics and an all-star salute to the late Jimmy Buffett with Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Zac Brown and longtime Buffett band member Mac McAnally.
Performances from the CMAs can be viewed individually here on YouTube, prior to the entire show becoming available on Hulu Thursday.

Chelyabinsk: from frontier town to industrial colossus
Chelyabinsk. "Sphere of Love," by Victor Mitroshin. Erected in 2000, this sculpture consists of four bronze trees surrounding two kissing figures under a dome of blue Italian glass. It has become the city's beloved calling card. July 13, 2003.
Chelyabinsk, located on the Miass River the southeastern Ural Mountains, is one of those largely ignored workhorses that form the backbone of Russian heavy industry. When the town’s relative obscurity was broken by a spectacular encounter with a meteorite in February 2013, it seemed that few outside observers knew much about this seventh-largest city in Russia. But Chelyabinsk has a varied architectural heritage that reflects profound social changes over the past century.
View of Chelyabinsk down the Miass River. Visible on far side are brick commercial buildings with Cathedral of Nativity of Christ (left) and Convent of the Hodegetria Icon of the Virgin (far right) - both demolished in the Soviet period. Late summer 1909.
Russian chemist and photographer Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky discovered some of the town’s architectural gems in Summer 1909, when he made his first trip to the Urals. The journey was part of an expansion of his project to photograph the diversity of the Russian Empire in the early 20thcentury. In May 1909, Emperor Nicholas II invited Prokudin-Gorsky to the imperial residence at Tsarskoe Selo to show his images of Russia through an elaborate projector. Following this presentation, the photographer gained the patronage of the imperial court to continue his travels, thus accelerating the pace and the scope of his work.
Chelyabinsk was founded in Autumn 1736 as part of a chain of forts constructed to protect supply lines from the granaries of western Siberia to the new Orenburg territory on Russia’s southern frontier. Cossack troops and settlers moved into the vast steppes roamed by Bashkir tribes, who responded with frequent attacks on Russian supply routes and outposts. By 1739, the Chelyabinsk fort had a population over 1,000.
Chelyabinsk. Late 19th-century brick commercial buildings on Kirov (formerly Ufa) Street. July 13, 2003.
Situated in a region rich in metals and foundry towns such as Kasli , Chelyabinsk remained a local market town for over a century. Its placid existence was broken by the settlement’s capture for two months in 1774 during a widespread, prolonged rebellion of serfs, Cossacks and Bashkirs led by Emelyan Pugachev.
Church of St. Alexander Nevsky, southeast view. Built in 1907-11 to a design by the prominent architect Alexander Pomerantsev. Closed in 1930, converted to planetarium. Restored in 1980s as concert hall. July 23, 2003.
The town’s growth advanced rapidly in the 1890s with the construction of the Trans-Siberian Railroad, which made Chelyabinsk a major junction in the southern Urals and a gateway to the east. Stimulated by agricultural reforms and promises of rich lands in Siberia, thousands of peasant families passed through resettlement centers in Chelyabinsk, where they received rudimentary care and supplies for the arduous trip to Siberia.
Alexander Kuznetsov Tea-Sorting Factory. Built in 1904, the Kuznetsov factory was among Russia's major tea processing facilities. By the time of Prokudin-Gorsky's visit it employed some 2,000 workers. July 12, 2003.
By 1897 the town had a diverse population of 20,000 inhabitants, including a Jewish community whose synagogue still functions. The pre-revolutionary decades witnessed the construction of numerous Orthodox churches, some of which have been restored in the post-Soviet period. Chelyabinsk also has several mosques.
Trinity Church, south view. Built in 1909-14, closed in 1929 and adapted to Regional History Museum. Returned to Orthodox Church in 1990, restored in 1993. July 23, 2003.
Commercial growth at the turn of the 20th century was boosted by agriculture and the construction of grain elevators. The transfer to Chelyabinsk of the main eastern customs point meant that the lucrative trade in Chinese tea was now processed in the town’s tea sorting plants. All of this was enabled by the railroad.
Chelyabinsk Synagogue. Built in 1903-05, the synagogue was closed in 1929 and converted to club for Chelyabinsk Tractor Factory. Returned to Jewish community in 1992 and restored in 1999-2000. July 12, 2003.
Revolution and industrialization
In the decade following Prokudin-Gorsky’s visit war, revolution and civil war took their toll, yet Chelyabinsk recovered and tripled its population by 1926. The launching of the Soviet Union’s first five-year economic plan in 1928 and the related collectivization of agriculture meant massive social upheaval. But for Chelyabinsk, the rapid march toward industrialization transformed its appearance and quadrupled its population in just over a decade.
Yalyshev department store, early 20th century. Its modernistic style exemplifies the rapid growth of Chelyabinsk before World War I. July 12, 2003.
A giant tractor factory was intended to launch Soviet agriculture into the machine age, and with the addition of a metallurgical plant, Chelyabinsk joined Magnitogorsk in producing steel and steel products. As a sign of the new age, administrative buildings and housing projects arose in a functional Soviet style.
State Bank Grain Elevator. Built in 1914-16 with advanced reinforced concrete technology as part of a national program for grain storage centers. Used until 1990s, then partially demolished. July 12, 2003.
With the outbreak of war on the Eastern front in June 1941, many military-industrial plants from the western Soviet Union were evacuated to Chelyabinsk, and local factories were reconfigured to produce weapons. The converted tractor factory produced tanks in such numbers that it became known as “Tankograd” (Tank City).
With the reconstruction of the country after the war, demand increased for Chelyabinsk steel and machinery. The region also became a center for research and production of atomic weapons.

This industrial, technological and military surge came at a price, as Chelyabinsk gained a reputation as one of the most polluted cities in the Soviet Union. In 1957, nuclear waste stored at the Mayak atomic facility located 45 miles northwest of Chelyabinsk exploded in one of the worst such catastrophes before Chernobyl.

In the 1990s, Chelyabinsk and its heavy industry experienced severe financial challenges. With sardonic humor, locals noted that at least the air was easier to breath. The economic situation has now rebounded. The Chelyabinsk Metal Plant — part of the global Mechel Company — and the city’s tractor factory once again employ thousands.
Naum Orlov Drama Theater. Begun in 1973 and opened in 1982, the new Chelyabinsk drama theater has entrances framed with Kasli cast-iron art. July 12, 2003.
The city’s many institutions of higher education — led by South Urals State University and Chelyabinsk State University — have contributed greatly to this recovery. Chelyabinsk is also the seat of both a metropolitanate and a bishopric of the Russian Orthodox Church. The bustling red brick town that Prokudin-Gorsky photographed from the Miass River has managed to reunite its cultural and spiritual heritage with contemporary development.
Monument to Chelyabinsk volunteers who joined the Urals Volunteer Tank Corps. Formed in 1943, the tank troops fought their way from Oryol to Berlin. Sculptor: Lev Golodnitsky. Unveiled in May 1975. July 13, 2003.
In the early 20th century the Russian photographer Sergei Prokudin-Gorsky devised a complex process for color photography. Between 1903 and 1916 he traveled through the Russian Empire and took over 2,000 photographs with the process, which involved three exposures on a glass plate. In August 1918, he left Russia and ultimately resettled in France with a large part of his collection of glass negatives. After his death in Paris in September 1944, his heirs sold the collection to the Library of Congress. In the early 21st century the Library digitized the Prokudin-Gorsky Collection and made it freely available to the global public. A number of Russian websites now have versions of the collection. In 1986 the architectural historian and photographer William Brumfield organized the first exhibit of Prokudin-Gorsky photographs at the Library of Congress. Over a period of work in Russia beginning in 1970, Brumfield has photographed most of the sites visited by Prokudin-Gorsky. This series of articles will juxtapose Prokudin-Gorsky’s views of architectural monuments with photographs taken by Brumfield decades later.
