As Metallica enter the stage and the scream of the crowd ignites, I tip toe above men twice my height and extend my neck as though I'm inspector gadget. I want to see them, I can't believe this is happening, all my dreams come true as my knees shake, my palms clam up and my heart races!
My very first show, it's everything I hoped for, I lift up the horns and begin to rock my braided head off, I could die right now are the words I mouth to my best girlfriend, she says you should of worn your sports bra and we giggle as we jump in time to the music!
Metallica bring their WorldWired tour to the UK and Europe this autumn. Metallica tickets go on general sale at 9am today, while tickets for European shows will be available from 10am local time, priced from £50.00 plus fees.
Last time we had a new Metallica album, we were in the last thrashings of George W. Bush’s presidency, Michael Jackson was still alive and everyone was convinced e-books were just a flash in the pan. Times change. So do Metallica.
