The past couple of days saw the first two concerts in the history of the new home of Minnesota Vikings football, U.S. Bank Stadium. Country star Luke Bryan kicked things off with a concert on Friday night, while rock legends Metallica took the stage last night in front of nearly 50,000 fans.
There were some issues that stadium officials seem to still be working out the kinks on, such as long food lines and things of that nature. But, one of the main concerns of a lot of Vikings fans appears to have been answered with last night’s Metallica concert.
U.S. Bank Stadium is going to be loud.
How loud? Take this example from an article by Ross Raihala for the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
It wasn’t just the 49,000 or so fans inside the football stadium who weathered the band’s monstrous, crushing riffs. Neighbors from more than a mile away reported via Twitter that they could hear the concert – which took place in an indoor stadium – inside their house.
People over a mile away being able to hear a concert at an indoor venue inside their houses? Gotta be honest. . .I’m not sure if the Metrodome ever got that loud.
We’ll finally be able to get a taste of how things will go for Vikings football a week from today, when the purple and gold play their first official game in the stadium against the San Diego Chargers.
UPDATE: Metallica just released a video of their live performance from US Bank Stadium on their facebook page. This also happens to be a new track off their upcoming “Hardwired” album. Fair warning, there is some NSFW language in their new song.
