THE MEMORY REMAINS: MEMORABILIA FROM METALLICA LIVE IN JAKARTA CONCERT, 25TH OF AUGUST 2013

This blog is dedicated to all Metalheads, the diehard fans of METALLICA…

METALLICA first came to Jakarta in 1993, I was just 14 years old back then and still don’t know who the hell they are… hahaha peace man…

My friend introduced them to me when I was in high school, and the first song I heard from them is ‘Wherever I May Roam’ from the Black Album… I thought it was brilliant man… it interested me to listen to the whole album, and guess what… it instantly turned me into Metalheads, and suddenly I am becoming a diehard fan of METALLICA… OH YEAH!

Afterwards, I was longing for them to come back again to Jakarta, longing for them to once again put up a monstrous live performance here in Jakarta, quenching my thirst and the thirst of all the diehard fans in Jakarta and Indonesia… the thirst for justice! Because justice is for all… and we did not feel any justice from METALLICA when they putting up concert all over the world except in Indonesia… so sad…   

And then I thought that they would never come again to Jakarta, I thought that we are waiting for ‘The Day That Never Comes…’

But then after 20 years waiting almost in despair, they finally came back… on the 25th of August 2013 they came back to Jakarta and put up one hell of a live performance at Gelora Bung Karno…

The show was phenomenal… 

during the concert, as the intro of Enter Sandman was played, the crowd screams, resounded throughout the stadium… a massive sound is created as the crowd sang along with the band… ‘That’s the loudest I ever heard a crowd sing “Sandman” in a very long time’, wrote METALLICA on its website…

So glad I could be a part of the crowd, a part of the army of black shirt, a part of headbanging metalheads, and maybe a part of history… who knows man… they might not be coming again to Jakarta or Indonesia… you know, because they are sooo busy making history somewhere else… he… 

the only picture I took during the concert

And here comes the best part…

I kept a memorabilia from the concert dude… it’s me and my wife’s concert tickets and a brochure/flyer of the concert… ain’t that somethin’ eh…

two tickets and one brochure/flyer from the concert
the back side of the tickets and brochure/flyer

well... The Memory Remains man… YEAH!

Now tell me, are you Metalheads still kept your tickets…?
