Video From Historic Metallica Show Online
The band were looking forward to playing in the country, as bassist Robert Trujillo told Gulf News. "This is a whole new adventure for us. Within a tour cycle, we usually play for a couple of years, and usually play a lot of the same venues in Europe and the US. This [show] is great, because we have never been to the Emirates, and we've never been to India [where Metallica are heading to after Abu Dhabi]. We know that there are a lot of fans there who have never seen Metallica live before."
"This is where it turns into a gig, adventure and holiday — we have been very busy, so for us to go to a place like the UAE, it becomes an adventure," added Trujillo. "And it makes it all that much more exciting because we get to perform. It's something different, and we love to explore. We have the best job in the world. We're not clocking in a 9-to-5. We do what we love, and we get to see the world. That's really cool." Watch a couple of videos from the show here
