We knew this would be an incredible show. It's Metallica. They always put on an amazing concert. We weren't ready for just amazing this one was.

Metallica played for over 2 hours at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park on Thursday. They played their hits. They played fan favorites they hadn't played live in a long time. They added local throwbacks and touches to make the show special.

Oh, and they had plenty of flames and pyro, too!

For anyone who loves rock and metal music, this was a dream show. Age has only made Metallica better. They sound amazing live. If you missed it, we're sorry because that sucks.

Shout out to Hammer and Hammer's Lot for letting us host our pre-show party where we gave out Halestorm tickets and broadcasted from. Also Blackend Whiskey, Metallica's own unique whiskey which we got to sample in a pre-show event exclusively. It's excellent stuff. 10/10 would recommend.

We were sitting in section 112 and got some nice pics for you to check out. Have some you want to share? Send them to
