Ride the Lightning: Metallica Tribute Show
Sat 25 Feb 2017
Metallica is one of the most iconic acts of all time, establishing themselves as the heavy metal band since their formation in 1981.
Selling more than 110 million records, being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and having been the only band to play all seven continents (all in one year, and including Antarctica), they are truly known all over the world. Whether it's Kirk Hammet's guitar skills or James Hetfield's vocals, songs like Enter Sandman
have spoken to generations with their combination of speed, skill, and hard metal.
Many musicians recognise Metallica as the definition of perfection and longevity, being without a doubt the most commercially successful thrash / heavy metal band ever.
Seeing them in concert is unforgettable.
RIDE THE LIGHTNING METALLICA SHOW
is a no-holds-barred, energetic show that prides itself on being a musically faithful reproduction of the entire Metallica live experience.
The show encompasses Metallica's entire catalogue of songs from the first album Kill Em All
, through to the most current album Hardwired to Self Destruct
It is with this broad range of songs that even the most die-hard fan is won over, for RIDE THE LIGHTNING METALLICA SHOW
plays the songs that Metallica themselves do not even attempt to play live anymore. This will ensure that every generation of Metallica fan, old or new, will enjoy their experience. The show will have every fan feeling as though they have just heard the real Metallica, and will have them coming back for more.
This event will take place at the Queensport Hotel, with the venue positioning itself to become Brisbane's premier live music hub. The Queensport Hotel was established in 1864 and is conveniently situated in Brisbane's port area. One of the last great Brissie pubs, it's a beautiful old Queenslander with great counter lunches, cold beer and bistro dining.
The Queensport offers free live music every Saturday night - there are at least two free tribute bands a month (check out upcoming events at here
.) You may have not had the opportunity to see the original artists, because they have disbanded or are sadly deceased. You may not have been able to attend their last show, or the tickets were out of your price range; so seeing the tributes is the next best thing. If you want to experience the atmosphere, stage performance and sounds of these music legends, then the tribute bands at the Queensport are not to be missed. Keeping live music alive in Brisbane is something that we should all encourage and support.
The Queensport Hotel wants to be known as the place to enjoy live music in Brisbane, at one of the city's oldest historical hotels with no noise restrictions and plenty of parking. The venue is outdoors, with a high undercover concert stage and dance area (with parts of the patron's area being shaded).

if you want to leave the car at home and enjoy a cold beer. It's a well-lit ten minute walk from Hemmant railway station (on the Cleveland line) along Gosport St.
