Metallica’s recent two-night extravaganza at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles has etched its place in the annals of history for a myriad of remarkable reasons. Among these is the astonishing feat of shattering an attendance record that was previously held by none other than Taylor Swift.
Yet, the tale that’s been on everyone’s lips revolves around a pint-sized protagonist named Storm – an intrepid canine who embarked on an escapade to witness the legendary thrash icons in action.
According to reports from sources like Louder and various media outlets, Storm, a plucky dog, managed to elude her abode near the Inglewood, California locale and, in a curious twist of fate, found herself within the confines of the stadium.
There, she reveled in the sonic onslaught of Metallica’s chart-toppers, becoming an unwitting part of their ongoing global tour, M72, which is slated to make its way to Mexico in the upcoming year.
Amidst the digital tapestry of social media, the band itself acknowledged this unconventional turn of events. However, it did so with a prudent caveat, advising against the inclusion of pets of any kind in such electrifying gatherings, citing potential health concerns.
Nevertheless, Metallica went on to assure everyone that after a night brimming with melody and mirth, Storm was safely returned to her domestic haven, replete with a tale that’s sure to regale all who listen.
“Following an enchanting night of harmonies amongst her #MetallicaFamily, Storm joyously reunited with her original kinfolk the ensuing day. Her sojourn encompassed a symphony of cherished tunes, encompassing the likes of ‘Barx Æterna,’ ‘Master of Puppies,’ and ‘The Mailman That Never Comes.'”
The concert held last Friday, August 25, heralded a new era of attendance records for SoFi Stadium. Enabled by the innovative Snake Pit stage setup, an assembly of 80,000 enthusiasts gathered each night, forming the largest concurrent congregation ever witnessed within these hallowed confines.
This feat eclipsed prior spectacles, which had included the resonant cadence of Taylor Swift’s performances and the grandeur of the Super Bowl.
You might have heard we had a four-legged fan join us for #M72LA! Despite reports to the contrary, our friend Storm snuck out of her home adjacent to @SoFiStadium and made her way to the gig all by herself.

Adding a touch of star-studded glamor to the proceedings, actor Jason Momoa was spotted amidst the fervor, gracing one of Metallica’s twin Los Angeles concerts.
The luminary, known for his roles in ‘Aquaman’ and ‘Game of Thrones,’ immortalized his experience by capturing himself in the throes of moshing and exclaiming, “They kicked off with Whiplash!” before disseminating the vibrant chronicle across his Instagram realm.
