This day, 30 years ago, Metallica kicked off their "Wherever We May Roam" tour in Peoria, IL. The guys didn’t go with an opening act for the tour; instead they presented it as "An Evening with Metallica". A video presentation was shown before the concerts actually started which lasted about 20 or 25 minutes & included clips of local sights near the venue, Metallica shopping in local stores, roadies prepping the arena, Lars walking around backstage giving introductions and reciting band history, or other band members engaging in various pranks. The video would conclude with a montage of "Enter Sandman" with film clips of Clint Eastwood in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
If you were lucky enough, you got to be a part of the North American leg of Metallica's "Wherever We May Roam" which made a stop at the Bison Sports Arena in Fargo on May 15th, 1992!
