Mercury News: Metallica shakes things up during Aftershock Festival in Sacramento
“Are you feeling good out there?” Metallica frontman James Hetfield asked from the stage on Friday night. He was immediately greeted with tens of thousands of voices, all screaming back in the affirmative that, yes, people were feeling mighty good. “Well, knock it off,” the vocalist-guitarist replied back in jest. Sorry, James, but that was one directive fans definitely weren’t going to follow. These metalheads were in the mood to party and sing along as Metallica performed the first of its two headlining sets during the 2021 Aftershock Festival in Sacramento’s Discovery Park.
