Metallica at the Paladium, Hollywood - live review
Venue: Palladium, Hollywood
Metal overlords leap into (trans)action
In retrospect, it’s surprising that Metallica have reigned comfortably atop the heavy metal food chain for well over two decades considering the missteps – Napster, Lulu, that St. Anger snare – they’ve made along the way. But then they go and do something cool and you forgive them... until their next slip-up, at least. Tonight’s show, which takes place a few hours after their awkward Grammy Awards duet with Lady Gaga, is a perfect example.
