Metallica S&M-style concert(s)?

if that title got you expecting something else, I do apologise...

 

Metallica's S&M (for those who might not know) is a live album from '97 (it think) taken from two shows where the band performed a load of their classic and current work with a full orchestra providing an extra addition to the songs' instrumentation (the SanFran Symphony Orchestra conducted by Michael Kamen if we're going to get snippy on the details).

 

 

I have had this idea for a few weeks since LT's release (yes, inspired by Castle Of Glass) and I wonder who else thinks this could be something damned cool? I'm not making some sort of "do this or we'll hate you" thread. but i'd be interested to hear what people would think of this. I'm sure the band would collaborate with arrangements, and I think this would work with a large amount of LP's songs -

 

the obvious -

Breaking The Habit

Castle Of Glass

In The End (the string parts have been amplified alot in this recent Euro Festivals run)

 

the "ooh that'd sound amazing" -

The Messenger

Iridescent

KRWLING?

Faint

Little Things... - enough said

 

the "damn! that'd be interesting" -

W&K

The Catalyst

Victimised :lol:

 

what do we reckon? -

setlist you'd like to see? how would you see the songs being arranged? a few CA shows, or a full tour? ;)

Can we please have One Step Closer with strings? I think the riff would sound brilliant.

Also, P5hng Me A*wy could be awesome with strings.

amen.

the horn section makes Enter Sandman sound so damned evil - the OSC "shut up!" bridge could sound bad-ass with that kind of treatment

I don't know if LP is ready for a full orchestra, idk if they're up to that point in their careers yet. But, an unplugged kinda thing would be awesome!! As far as an orchestra here's my list of songs I'd wanna hear.

 

Breaking the Habit

Little Things

Castle of Glass

From The Inside

With You

Tbh, I dunno if this'd work unless the setlist included very few pieces pre-MTM. Strings can add an arbitrary level of sophistication to a song, but if it's over lyrics like "the memory won't escape me / but why should I care" then it'll just sound stupid.

 

That said, I think LP could pull off a stripped down concert with a smaller string section.

I already think about this for a long time but I'm not sure if everyone will like it..

For me,rock and orchestra is a great combination..

Just like Metallica and Scorpions,which both of the band is my favorite,I really enjoy the show and they sound awesome..

I can imagine how the songs from LP combine with orchestra..

It will be epic..

haha of course, it'd need to be a bit more "grown up" than some of the HT/M songs :P

 

I'm sure they've done something similar for KROQ AAC.

 

that and there's a picture of Phoenix playing a double bass somewhere...

 

i would see a possible setlist of -

 

01. [intro - no idea, something new for the event]

02. Faint

03. I'll Be Gone

04. Burn It Down

05. Leave Out All The Rest

06. ??

07. Castle Of Glass

08. Shadow Of The Day

09. Papercut

10. Given Up

11. From The Inside

12. With You

13. Numb [keys outro]

14. Breaking The Habit

15. Jornada/Waiting For The End

16. Iridescent

17. The Messenger

-------------

18. Crawling [KRAWLING intro]
