Metallica made history in Buenos Aires
The Californian band gave last night their second and last concert at River Plate Stadium, where over 100 thousand people were blown out with pure hard rock. Tomorrow the band will be in Cordoba for the end their stay in Argentina.
“Tonight we made history Buenos Aires,” said singer / guitarist James Hetfield, who along with his bandmates Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo returned to Buenos Aires after a cancellation in 2003 and their previous shows in 1993 and 1999.
“It’s great to be back in Argentina. The fans are very passionate but we have no plans to record these shows for a future DVD,” said Ulrich, drummer and founder of the ensemble.
The staging, with breathtaking fireworks, Hetfield and Hammett’s guitars, with the powerful base of Trujillo on bass, and Ulrich, were expected and known formula for blowing heads off in River Plate.
On the final, “Buenos Aires kicks ass!” Shouted Hetfield untying the delirium of the audience. The show was huge. The debt is settled.
