Having played ACL Fest earlier this month, Metallica are continuing to tour and they're in New York as we speak. They played Buffalo's Keybank Center last night (10/27), they take tonight off, and they play Albany's Times Union Center on Monday (10/29). We caught the Buffalo show, which included five songs from their latest album, 2016's Hardwired... to Self-Destruct, and otherwise focused entirely on the first five albums, offering up classics like "Battery," "Master of Puppets," "Leper Messiah," "Creeping Death," "For Whom the Bell Tolls," "Seek & Destroy," "The Four Horsemen," "One," "Nothing Else Matters," "Sad But True," "Enter Sandman," "The Unforgiven," and "Wherever I May Roam." Pictures are in the gallery above. Check out some videos and the full setlist below.

Metallica have lots of other tour dates coming up, including Europe with Ghost in 2019. Kirk Hammett also recently teased the idea of solo albums.
