Metallica @ The Hollywood Palladium

That little band Metallica dropped by The Hollywood Palladium last night for the City Sound Vault Series after their memorable performance with Lady Gaga on The Grammys. The dedicated Metallica family camped out over night and hugged the rail for hours after doors opened (not taking a bathroom break) until finally, the guys walked out on stage to everyone losing their minds.

All senses and eardrums were destroyed. There were no issues with James Hetfield’s mic(s) whatsoever, drunk guys tried to play air guitar along with Kirk Hammett, hardcore diehards had their fists in the air and we all felt like masters.

Not only is Metallica playing new tunes from their tenth studio album Hardwired… to Self-Destruct, but they just announced a U.S. Tour, including July 29th at The Rose Bowl.
