METALLICA Jams With 13-Year-Old Boy On Drums
According to The Pulse Of Radio, a 13-year-old boy named Evan got the birthday gift of a lifetime when he performed "Seek And Destroy" with METALLICA at the metal legends' show Tuesday night (June 11) at the Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam.
In pro-shot video posted on METALLICA's social media pages, frontman James Hetfield is seen saying: "Oh God, Lars shrunk! They put Lars in the wash. I told 'em not to put him in the dryer. He shrunk," as the camera shows Evan behind the kit, with Lars Ulrich coming over to give him some last-minute advice.
Evan then does a fine job opening the metal classic with Ulrich screaming, "That's right!" in the mic before eventually taking over the drum kit from Evan for the rest of the song.
The youngster ended up going on Instagram after the show to write: "Well well well no words I mean to play drums in front of 68,000 people with my hero's my favourite band of all time was just the best thing ever and to top it all off it was my bday !!"
METALLICA continues its European tour on Thursday night (June 13) in Cologne, Germany.
