Damaged Justice was the fourth concert tour by the American thrash metal band Metallica. It began on September 11, 1988 and ended on October 8, 1989. The name is believed to be inspired either by the cover of its fourth studio album ...And Justice for All, or by the song "Damage, Inc." from the group's previous album, Master of Puppets. Both of the August 29 and 30, 1989 shows in Seattle, Washington were later released in the box set Live Shit: Binge & Purge.

Itinerary[edit]

The tour marked the one and, to date, only time that Metallica has played in the U.S. state of Delaware. On August 7, 1989, the band headlined a special and very drunken gig at Newark's Stone Balloon.

The line-up from left to right; Jason Newsted (bass), Lars Ulrich (drums), James Hetfield (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Kirk Hammett (lead guitar).

Alternate songs[edit]

The setlist remained fairly consistent over the course of the tour. "Blackened" opened every performance with the exception of "Creeping Death" at some concerts in the summer of 1989. "The Wait" was teased as part of the second encore beginning with the spring '89 Pacific Rim tour. Other covers teased included "Prowler" (originally performed by Iron Maiden), "Helpless", "How Many More Times" by Led Zeppelin and "Black Night" by Deep Purple. "Eye of the Beholder" was often played as the fifth or sixth song, immediately following "Harvester of Sorrow"; it was switched out fairly regularly with "The Four Horsemen". "Leper Messiah" made infrequent appearances in this position as well. "Damage, Inc." followed the bass solo initially (this can be heard on various bootlegs from the fall '88 European tour) but was for the most part phased out by the end of the year and used as an encore when at all. The encores changed almost every night but almost always consisted of the covers "Breadfan" and "Blitzkrieg" (rare) among them as well as the aforementioned "Damage, Inc." and "Motorbreath", from Kill 'Em All. The band also started switching instruments during "Am I Evil?" at certain dates starting in 1989. Lars Ulrich would be on lead vocals, Jason Newsted on guitar, Kirk Hammett on bass and James Hetfield on drums. The group performed it at these shows: Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada on April 3, Tokyo, Japan on May 14, Newark, Delaware on August 7, Irvine, California on September 23 & São Paulo on October 7.

Around halfway through the tour as the "One" single and video became more successful, it moved further down the setlist to the first encore, and "Fade To Black" would take it's spot between "Master Of Puppets" and "Seek & Destroy".
