USA Today: 'Music helps us through all things': Metallica rocks virtual concert at drive-in theaters
We watched the concert special at Adventureland, a fairground-style Long Island staple that's temporarily closed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Two small screens were erected in the park's expansive parking lot, where a shuttered roller coaster and Ferris wheel loomed overhead. Pint-sized train cars that normally circle the park now sat dormant, as dozens of people in Metallica T-shirts lined the train tracks waiting for restrooms. Occasionally, you'd walk by pictures of cartoon animals and superheroes peering through the darkness, giving the whole event a somewhat apocalyptic feel.
