Metallica LOVES Canada
I don’t want to butter you guys up too much, but honestly we’ve always had a special relationship with Canada…we did our first next level, full run of only Canada in December of 1986, coast to coast. In December, I’ll emphasize that December part. And we hit the Rimouskis of the world, the Chicoutimis of the world, the Thunder Bays and the Hamiltons and whatever else and… Did I say December? Since then there’s been a particular love affair between Metallica and Canada.
Guitarist Kirk Hammett added:
Canadians have so much love for Metallica…It’s very, very evident all across the country. I mean, every time we come here, we sell out instantly.
