The rest remains to be seen.
Before the mighty Metallica reclaims the stage at the Linc, the crowd was supposed to see “Bat Country” singers Avenged Sevenfold. Those plans changed this morning when guitarist Synyster Gates’ wife went into labor with the couple’s first child and forced the band to skip the show.
Updated set times will be announced later in the day.
Despite the absence of Avenged Sevenfold, South Philly is still set for a break-neck night of rock at the hands of Metallica and Volbeat – their chart-topping hard-charging friends from Denmark.READ MORE: Officer Fires Gun During Struggle With Suspect Wanted For Stealing Car, Philadelphia Police Say
