Metallica Played For One Percent Of The Population Of Finland In One Night

By Richie on July 18, 2019

METALLICA played a show in Finland on Tuesday night, and ended up performing for one percent of the ENTIRE POPULATION.

They drew a crowd of 55,000 . . . and there are only 5.5 million people in all of Finland.  The band donated 55,000 euros to a local children’s charity . . . one euro for each member of the audience.

As they often do, bassist ROBERT TRUJILLO and guitarist KIRK HAMMETT did their little segment where they tackle a song that means something to the local crowd.

On this night they chose a song from the Finnish rock band POPEDA.  It’s called “Kuuma Kesä”, which means “Hot Summer”.  And Robert sang it IN FINNISH.
