The M2K Tour is a mini tour by American heavy metal band Metallica. This tour went late December 1999 to early January 2000. Also during the tour, Trapped Under Ice was requested to be played when they were in Chicago by a fan. The song was only played 2 other times: on November 17, 1984 in Belgium, and on November 18, 1984 in Paris. Metallica also played the New Year's Eve show in Pontiac, Michigan at the Silverdome in front of 50,000 people. At the show, Metallica played a Kiss song Detroit Rock City. The setlists for these tour dates, like their Sick of the Studio '07 tour, consisted of old songs and songs that they have not played in many years. These included Blackened, Trapped Under Ice, and Phantom Lord.
