We just grabbed our tickets, I'll be flying up there just for the show. I really wish Gojira were opening this date and not Volbeat, but whatever....it'll be drinking time. I'm an admitted A7X fan so I'm stoked they'll be there, as well. Can't wait to see the stage sets for these shows!
My buddy works A/V at Gillette, he got a work order a couple weeks back for the ballroom and then his boss told him it was for Metallica. A few times in the past, he's "hired" me as a freelancer to go in and help out when something cool was going on at a hotel or something, so after the show he's going to scope out the situation and see if it's worth checking out.
I was thinking about it, but $100 for Metallica doing mostly new stuff with some of the hits just isn't really a priority. It also happens to be that there's a Cryptopsy/Decrepit Birth/Rivers of Nihil show happening that same day that'll melt faces, so I'm gonna try to hit that.
