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.
