Maybe because the band enjoyed rave reviews for its daring 2004 psychodrama, Some Kind of Monster, an experimental narrative is shoehorned in, involving a roadie (Dane DeHaan) doing bloody battle in a deserted city. Your heart sinks with every cutaway. But the intrusions are few, and there’s creativity within the concert itself: A mike shorts out, a bank of lights crashes down on technicians, and a huge statue is toppled. Block those Spinal Tap allusions.
