Wish (College time) came true : Metallica In Bangalore

I am not sure but it was 1999-2000 or around that time that one of my friend Amol Kolhe copied a 15 GB rock/metal collection to my hard disk (15 gb out of 40 GB was a big deal at that time) which consisted of ACDC,Iron Maiden,Deep Purple and GnR,Metallica to name a few.

First songs from Metallica i heard were - Nothing else matters (no surprise here) - Fade to Black - Fuel and Sad but true,Unforgiven and Seek and destroy and Master of puppets and trust me rest is history.

Since that day i have always been a great fan and always wanted to watch them live.

When i came to Bangalore i saw lots of bands performing here and so expected Metallica will perform soon but it took almost 8 yrs(wait-time for me - for India it was 20 yrs) for them to perform here in India.Now add a little drama there - Delhi show got cancelled and my friends and i were not sure if this would happen in Bangalore.

But anyways we watched them live at Palace Grounds Bangalore and it was worth every trouble we took (around 7 hrs and little more on our feet,rain,mud everywhere,insane crowd(insane by numbers around 22k tickets were sold) and last but not the least - our poor aching legs but you know what: IT WAS FRIGGING WORTH IT.

Hetfield screamed - Bangaloreeeeee we are with you  are you with usssssssssss and it was all magical from there on.

A college time craze/wish came true it was an experience worth remembering - memory worth cherishing with my best buddies Ansari and Shama it was just icing on the cake.

Thanks Metallica for the killer show  Bangalore Loved it.
