Metallica, Anthrax , @ City Hall, Sheffield, 18-9-86



This was a CRAZY gig. It was a wild audience. The penguins on security just didn’t know how to deal with everyone. A stand out memory is of a punk with a mohekan stood on stage,”flicking the Vs”,goading security. The tension in the air was amazing. This was the begining of a different type of crowd at gigs. Both Anthrax & Metallica were great(even though James had a standin on guitar). Strange as it sounds, it was nowhere near sold out. But the people in the know were there. It was obvious that Metallica were on the verge of becoming HUGE….& then the accident happened in Scandanavia…
