Alice in Chains axeman Jerry Cantrell joined the band during For Whom the Bell Tolls.

Jerry also provided vocal harmonies during Nothing Else Matters.

There was not a safe goat in sight as Animal took to the stage for a razor sharp performance of the sweet, little Anti-Nowhere League ditty entitled SO WHAT! So What was last performed by Metallica on November 3, 2008 in Salt Lake City, UT.

This was only the fifth performance of Tuesday's Gone. It was last performed before an audience prior to the live taping of MTV's Reload, Rehearse, Request special on March 21, 1998.

Headlights! Head on! Jason Newsted returned for the third night in a row, this time performing Fuel and Fight Fire With Fire.

The original Misfit himself, Glenn Danzig, joined the boys for a trio of Misfits songs. Glenn last performed with Metallica on July 3, 1993 in Tinley Park, IL.

ROB F'ING HALFORD!!! Metallica brought out the Metal God for a smoking rendition of the Priest classic Rapid Fire. Metallica last played Rapid Fire on August 21, 1994 in Miami, FL again with Halford on vocals.
