Gigantour Featuring Megadeth, Motorhead, Lacuna Coil, Volbeat at Comerica Theatre, 2/25/12

Gigantour Comerica Theatre Saturday, February 25

I'm no metalhead, but I recognize dedication when I see it. I spent last night at the Gigantour, featuring Megadeth, Motorhead, Lacuna Coil, and Volbeat, packed into Comerica theatre with people from all generations, cloaked in the blackest of black, all with a shared desire to have their eardrums raped by machine-gun drumming and shredding guitars.

As I walked into Comerica Theatre on a seasonal Saturday evening, I took note that the red shirt I had on was way too colorful and made me stick out like Waldo in the crowd of dark shirts. Turns out I had no need to worry: Regardless of my lack of long hair and tattoo sleeves, I was welcomed into the fascinating and fast-paced world of metal.
