Metallica To Replace Metallica Tribute Band’s Stolen Gear
Metallica is helping a tribute band after their gear got ripped off following a show last weekend. The band is called “Blistered Earth: A Tribute To Metallica” and they had a full trailer full of gear worth $20,000 completely stolen from the hotel they were staying at in Portland. Lars Ulrich caught wind of the story and immediately contacted the band to help replace the missing equipment. Blistered Earth says they are beyond thrilled, and pleasantly surprised by the fact that Lars even heard the story, much less that they made such an offer. “It is incredibly humbling and gives us even greater respect for the band pay tribute to every night.”
Metallica is getting set to bring their ‘WorldWired’ tour to sold-out Rogers Centre in Toronto on July 16th.
