Metallica Fans Take Ultimate ‘Metal Quiz’ Outside Of Ford Field (Video)
Well, it’s Friday and the week is coming to an end. Typically, that would be exciting. However, this Friday, all I can think about is how last week at this time we were getting ready for Night One of Metallica at Ford Field.
Now, all we have left is our glorious memories of the night. Thankfully, those are some amazing memories that will carry us through at least the winter, I hope. Detroit was fortunate to rock two nights with Metallica last Friday and Sunday and the band brought their A-game.
Recapping Metallica at Ford Field
Talking with fans and listeners, the crowd seems pretty divided on which night was the superior event. Some say it was Night One, others confidently say it has to be Night Two. If you weren’t able to make it yourself, check out the setlists from Night One and Night Two and see which one you prefer. Here’s what the WRIF Staff said were their favorite parts of the weekend.
Personally, I only made it to the show on Sunday night (Night Two) and it was my very first time seeing Metallica. So, by default that was my favorite night. Truthfully, I was blown away. It was amazing to see how much passion and energy the band brings to the stage.
You can tell they’re out there having a blast, and I believe that transmits into the audience. If I see you up there having a blast, I’m more likely to enjoy the show than if the band was slumping through the set acting like they don’t want to be there. I’ve seen it more than once, from some pretty big bands! It’s nice to see Metallica does not do it that way. Far from it.
Metallica Weekend In Detroit
It was a great weekend in Detroit, and a lot happened! Meltdown had the opportunity to chat with Metallica’s bassist Robert Trujillo before the shows. It was a great interview, and Meltdown really got Robert to open up about his love for the city of Detroit and its influence on him. I highly recommend you check out both part one and part two of that interview. Outstanding interview by one of the best conversationalists in the game. Don’t tell Meltdown I said that, please.
Look, I couldn’t go see Metallica and not have a little fun with my fellow concert goers. Since we were at Metallica, I decided it would be fun to quiz fans on their knowledge of Metal. Only, not metal like the genre of music Metallica is known for. I mean Metals like gold, silver, and steel. You get it.
So, I put fans to the test! I asked questions where every answer contains some sort of metal. Get it? Let’s play! After you play along, make sure to keep scrolling to check out our photo gallery from Detroit’s Metallica weekend at Ford Field!
