I’ve collected ticket stubs for years, but in today’s digital age, paper stubs are few and far between, even more so for one-off shows and special performances, like September 8th in San Francisco. I designed an alternative a few months back for my baseball travels and figured I’d take a stab at Metallica’s S&M2, which…
It’s all led to this. 17 of 35 shows and my Metallica ‘Black Ticket’ tour comes to an end.
The reality of Middle America has been loud and clear on my Metallica tour of America, and Birmingham, Alabama was just another example. I’d noticed the same thing through upstate New York and Pennsylvania last October. We are truly living in a period of haves and have nots. It’s a sad and eye opening reality driving into another town, like many I’ve seen this year, that is screaming for help.
Fresh off an East Coast string of shows and the World Series, my Metallica ‘Black Ticket’ tour continues to San Francisco and the lights of Las Vegas.
What do you do when your planned Metallica tour just ‘happens’ to line up with the World Series? You do both!
I was excited for my 2nd and 3rd shows of my Metallica “Black Ticket” tour — If Jason Vorhees didn’t kill me first!
My Metallica “Black Ticket” tour may start now, but the real beginning started with mullets, mustaches, and a bitchin’ Camaro. (None of which were mine.)
A quick trip that was scheduled for Petco Park and Chase Field evolved into a trip for Metallica’s “Big 4” with some baseball as the cherry on top!
I don’t know if there was a better experience as a fan, than Metallica’s 30th Anniversary shows at the Fillmore in San Francisco.
