Lars on rocking Yankee Stadium
Eric Helton, Matthew Murphy

Backstage at Yankee Stadium, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich told Rolling Stone that his band couldn't refuse an invitation to bring their Big 4 show with Anthrax, Slayer and Megadeth to the home of the Bronx Bombers. "There's never been a hard rock experience in Yankee Stadium," says Ulrich. "Ninety-nine percent of the rock experiences in New York are at Giants Stadium, the Meadowlands thing. So anytime Metallica gets a chance to do anything that's unique and different... getting to come here to the hallowed grounds of Yankee Stadium was something we couldn't say no to."
