Band Time Spent Playing

Heavy Metal Business Intelligence: A Visual Data Exploration of Metallica's 30 Years on the Road

Fun little metric totaling how much time 'the boys' have spent on stage playing particular songs. Not 100% accurate since the times are an average approximation based on the album track length (and we all know that some go long, short, or either way). Regardless, its a pretty interesting tally.

Show and song data from, location and distances calculated by Google Maps API, song length data from MusicBrainz database, visualization software by Tableau Public, and putting it all together courtesy of Me.

More Metallica Reports, Setlists, Analytics and More

Be the first to know when I add new analytic pages and breakdowns. Its going to be a great couple of years for Metallica fans.

Adding new stuff all the time and will be refreshed after every 2012+ Metallica show and festival. Think of anything that should be here but isn't, see anything that is wrong? Leave a comment, mate!
