Coldplay could have a UFO landing in the middle of the set and some aliens jump out and I still wouldn't take notice.

Metallica's biggest influence was actually a band called Diamond Head.
I think I believe James Hetfield when he stated Sabbath were their biggest infuence.

Must admit I was surprised by the lack of pyro, must have been a reason as they normally have quite a few during 'One'
Possibly a safety issue, due to the other people on stage?

Well Sabbath are the biggest influence on Metal, bar none. They invented the genre after all.

You really shouldn't start out on a task without being in possession of the appropriate tools.

Yes, Sabbath are the biggest early influence but Blue Cheer have a claim on the first metal song, their version of 'Summertime Blues' - out about a year before Sabbath had even formed.

I've been a fan of Metallica since I was 9. Great live band. Good to see them getting a chance to tick another thing off their CV list.

Well you know what I mean. It's another thing they can tick off as done.

A band that crossed musical genres.

Metallica were terrific. I enjoyed them much more than that pretentious shite on Friday night.

Metallica were brilliant, one of the best headliners in years
I second this! I think 'tallica and Arcade Fire have made for the best Friday and Saturday headliners for a good while. No current British band could top what either of them have done.

1] the comments about a lack of pyro and effects - just perhaps, they didn't need it?? Maybe when a band goes OTT with all of that, its covering up the songs....Metallica just basically plugged in and played their socks off.
2] I do quite like Kasabian but if I was them, I would phone in sick today, they have no chance of topping the Metallica performance.
3] Its about time Glastonbury had Rock and Metal headlining! It's a far bigger genre than many people recognise - some of the lead up coverage has been embarrassing, trying to make out that Metal fans are a rare breed. Very patronising.
4] Despite the fact that no-one would have bought a ticket knowing Metallica would headline, the place was packed and there was plenty of noise coming back and lyrics being sung - which surely proves that more people like them than the press realised?
5] They completely justified their status - they are the biggest of the three headliners by far. Anyone who moaned about them topping the bill needs to get a life sorted out and go and attend a festival where they can sit happily in their slippers and cardigans.
6] Only gripe - it's 'Glaston-bree' James, not 'Glaston-berry'!!

Radiohead could.

Nothing like being pedantic.....what exactly does that add to the conversation, other than making you feel smug and superior???
