Metallica performed their top-selling 1991 LP, "Metallica", a.k.a. "the black album," in its entirety at the Udine concert. As they have done on all the shows on their current European tour, the band played the LP backwards, starting with closing number "The Struggle Within" and ending with "Enter Sandman".The band's setlist was as follows:
01. Hit The Lights02. Master Of Puppets03. Fuel04. For Whom The Bell Tolls05. Hell And Back06. The Struggle Within07. My Friend Of Misery08. The God That Failed09. Of Wolf And Man10. Nothing Else Matters11. Through The Never12. Don't Tread On Me13. Wherever I May Roam14. The Unforgiven15. Holier Than Thou16. Sad But True17. Enter Sandman------------------18. Battery19. One20. Seek And Destroy
Asked whose idea it was for Metallica to play the "black" album in reverse on the current tour, the band's drummer, Lars Ulrich, told Rolling Stone magazine, "If you like the idea, it was mine. If you don't, it was James' [Hetfield, guitar/vocals]. For better or worse, I'm the setlist guy. This is all subject to change if it doesn't work. But the idea of starting off with the lesser-known songs buried down there and ending up with 'Sad But True' and 'Enter Sandman' seems like a winner. You finish with the money shot, which is the first song."
