September 11, 1992. Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, and Faith No More played a rock gig for the ages at the old Foxboro Stadium. Here’s how it all went down…sort of.
A bunch of you were good enough to answer my call when I mentioned I wasn’t at the gig and fill in the blanks with a bit of an oral history via Twitter. I’ve shared your memories below.
Faith no More was opener. Did the best they could in the daylight. Metallica took the stage before dusk and played an unrelenting set. HC Metallica fans left the show. By the time GnR took the stage it was hard to stand. That was the problem with the tour.— Patrick Richardson (@swirlingmedia) September 11, 2019
Yes it was due to the Hetfield burns.— thomas8176 (@thomas8176) September 11, 2019
It was an amazing show, Faith No More did great with the time given the were touring the Angel Dust Album. Hetfield was more of a frontman because he couldn't play guitar because of the burns. GnR were monsters at the time and their stage presence was massive.— thomas8176 (@thomas8176) September 11, 2019
AngelDust so goooddd. The album, not the drug. Don’t do angel dust the drug— the Dread Chief Justice Roberts (@DetDeLano) September 11, 2019
