Another day, another Metallica show to attend.
I'll be taking a road trip to the Times Union Center in Albany, NY tonight to see the mighty Metallica once again on their WorldWired Tour. Always a kick ass show, I've seen Metallica a number of times over the years including last year at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on this tour. I'll always remember my first time seeing Metallica. I remember it like it was yesterday as me and a bunch of my headbanger friends were taking final exams in our junior year of high school in Dover Plains NY, just waiting to get through them so we can get on the road and head out to Middletown for Metallica! It was June 17th, 1994 and we had a convoy of cars heading out on I84. You knew it was summertime when they were rockin in Middletown, and it was a hot summer day. The Concert: Metallica with guests Danzig and Suicidal Tendencies will forever be in my memory as one of the greatest concerts I have ever attended.
Comedian Jim Breuer will be opening tonight's show in Albany and I'm looking forward to heading there with my friend Pauly Walnuts. The band is touring in support of their latest album Hardwired... to Self-Destruct. Will we be seeing you at tonight's show?
