Does Metallica Have the Best Fanbase in Music?

There is no doubt that Metallica is the biggest metal act in the world, but they wouldn't hold that title if it wasn't for their massive fanbase. We saw fans who were old enough to have have caught the band during the Kill 'Em All tour back in 1983, but we also saw youngsters who were attending their first concert. This generational crossover is exactly how a heavy metal band was able to sell out a football stadium on Friday night, August 4. Photos by Jim Louvau.
