BC Place Stadium in Vancouver was packed on Monday night as Metallica fans poured into the venue.
Avenged Sevenfold and Gojira opened for the mass of metal heads, who were encouraged to arrive early in the hopes of avoiding May’s U2 fiasco.
With a huge stage, crazy pyrotechnics, and a raucous crowd, the concert was anything but mild, and a lot of the action was caught on camera.
While it may not be anything close to the live experience—or nearly as loud—a few songs can be heard, and the amazing fire displays can be seen.
Here’s a few photos and videos we threw together to give you a glimpse into the mayhem from last night.
