Truck Carrying Metallica Gear In Upstate New York Accident
The accident happened en route to a tour stop in Montreal, just north of Lake George on I-87.
Metallica is on their hugely successful M72 World Tour, having just got off a weekend of shows at MetLife Stadium in E. Rutherford, New Jersey where the band played two, back-to-back shows, entertaining thousands including many Hudson Valley area headbangers.
Sometimes in this crazy radio business, you get to see some amazing shows, and other times you're just too busy to get to the rock show, and can't make it. That was me last weekend when Metallica came through the area. It seemed like everyone I knew was at the Metallica shows in Jersey that featured Pantera and Mammoth WVH opening on Friday night, and Five Finger Death Punch on Saturday.
From all reports, the shows were amazing and all the bands killed it in front of over 80,000 fans each night.
