GALLERY: Metallica at BOK Center


On Friday, January 18, Metallica brought their Worldwired Tour to Tulsa’s BOK Center. The band performed on a stage in the center of the crowd and under 52 moving LED cubes that created a constantly shifting and morphing atmosphere.

The set list leaned heavily on the band’s classic albums of the ‘80s and early ‘90s and their latest release, 2016’s Hardwired... to Self-Destruct.

Highlights of the show included a jam on “You Dropped a Bomb on Me” by Tulsa’s own Gap Band, a cover of Soundgarden’s “Head Injury,” and Hardwired...’s “Moth Into Flame,” during which dozens of autonomous drones danced above the stage like the sentient embers of Kirk Hammet’s scorching licks.

Set list:
“Atlas, Rise!”
“Seek & Destroy”
“Holier Than Thou”
“The Unforgiven”
“Now That We’re Dead”
“Creeping Death”
“For Whom the Bell Tolls”
“Halo On Fire”
