Kerrang!: LARS ULRICH REFLECTS ON METALLICA’S FIRST EVER GIG
37 years ago this month, Metallica played their first ever show. Taking place on March 14 at Radio City in Anaheim, California, they played a nine-song set and entry was just $15! “1st ever gig. Very nervous. Only band. Dave broke a string on the first song. Played 50-50!!! Went down pretty good,” reads Lars’ diary entry. It’s safe to say they progressed from ‘pretty good’ later on.
