Metallica have been breaking records with their recent tour and it seems everyone was at their latest gig in LA.
However, there was one four-legged attendee who managed to see the show - despite not having a ticket.
No one is quite sure how the dog made her way through security, but she was spotted sitting among the crowd during the heavy metal concert.
Though she was a good girl, authorities became increasingly concerned about her welfare when Storm didn’t leave with the other fans.
Clearly, she wasn’t looking for an autograph, so the Animal Health & Wellness Organization took her in for the night.
Fearing that the dog had been abandoned at the concert, the group shared a post on Facebook and not long after her owner, Arizbeth Hurtado, came forward to collect her.
It turns out the metalhead mut lives close to the stadium and decided she’d rather be at the sell-out show then at home with her family.
Tagging the stadium and rescue group, her owner thanked everyone for finding her beloved pup and wrote: “Our baby is home and safe!!! Thank you guys.”
In an interview with PetHelpful, Hurtado, later joked that they’d ‘learned something new’ about Storm.
She told the website: “She is home and safe! We learned something new about her… she is apparently a huge Metallica fan who decided to sneak out for the concert!”
However, Storm’s five minutes of fame were far from over with Metallica even sharing her story on social media.
In a post on X, that set tails wagging, they shared the feel-good story along with a picture of the pup mid-performance.
It read: “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.
“After a full night taking in the show with her #MetallicaFamily, Storm was safely reunited with her actual family the next day.
“She had a great time listening to her favorite songs, including 'Barx Æterna', 'Master of Puppies', and 'The Mailman That Never Comes'."
However, Metallica made it clear that four-legged friends should really sit out their sell-out shows.
They added: “…And in case you were wondering, no. You definitely shouldn’t bring your furry friends to the #M72 World Tour. But this dog sure did have her day…”
We wonder what other music Storm enjoys…
