Early Metallica Rider List Surfaces Online
Believe it or not, there was a time when Metallica wasn't the biggest metal band in the world. Back in 1983, current metal giants were thrashing hard, setting clubs on fire and making about $1,250 per each two shows. These days, they are cashing in a hefty $1 million per concert, ranking themselves among the most paid music acts of today. And now, 30 years later, a rider list from the time the band toured with heavy metallers Raven has surfaced online via The Smoking Gun, giving us a unique insight on what was it like for the four-piece back in the day. With a total length of 11 paragraphs, the list clearly stresses out that Metallica should be provided with their very own case of beer, along with the fulfillment of all technical requirements needed for the show. You can check out the full rider list here. In more recent Metallica news, Lars Ulrich has stated that he doesn't want the group to turn into a nostalgia band. With a "Metallica Through The Never" 3D movie set for an August 9 premiere and the second edition of the Orion Music festival confirmed to take place in Detroit, you could say Metallica is keeping themselves very busy these days.
