‘The Ultimate Metallica Show’ – Boston Calling Setlist Prediction – May 22, 2022
That's it! Sunday night, May 22, was our last show before Boston Calling.
We are mere days away from Metallica making their triumphant return to New England for the first time since their show at Gillette Stadium on May 19, 2017. Boston Calling kicks off this Friday, May 27, with Nine Inch Nails, continues Saturday with The Strokes, and then wraps up with Mighty Metallica closing things out Sunday night. You can grab festival details here and tickets to Boston Calling here.
Ahead of Sunday, we put our heads together to come up with a great—and realistic!—setlist for Metallica's headlining gig. Looking at their past shows this year and pulling out a few gems that we'd love to hear, we dedicated last night's Ultimate Metallica Show to this hopeful setlist.
