A few years back Dave Grohl bought a single general admission ticket to go see himself a Metallica concert and the man had one hell of a time!
Check out some of the photographic evidence below:
The Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl stood among the crowd in the Metallica “snake pit” at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California just like an ordinary everyday dude.
Grohl seemingly forgoing any VIP treatment, gave time to friendly up with other concert goers. Dave also took a bunch of selfies with his new friends.
There was no word if Dave had run into Ray Burton, the father of late Metallica bassist Cliff Burton who was also in attendance for the gig, but one can dream.

Regardless if your a fan of Dave Grohl’s music or not, one cannot deny the fact that he’s an ordinary dude just like the rest of us.
Dave Grohl is a longtime Metallica listener, once telling an interviewer “I’ll be die-hard Metallica fan until the day I die.”
“I bought the first Metallica album on cassette from a mail-order catalog,” Grohl said. “I had never heard of them… and the description said, ‘thrash metal.’ That sounded scary and cool. So I sent them my $6 or $7 and a couple weeks later, I get this tape in the mail. It was Kill ‘Em All, and it blew my fucking mind.”
Another interviewer once asked “So, what keeps Dave Grohl grounded?” Dave replied: “Having children that don’t give a f*ck if you’re a rock star. My kids don’t give a shit I’m in The Foo Fighters, their like daddy, I need a smoothie now”.
