Metallica’s gear truck involved in major accident before weekend gigs in Montreal
A truck carrying equipment to Metallica's Montreal shows was involved in a serious highway accident near Lake George, New York, this week. While the wreckage was significant, there were no major injuries and the band's Friday (August 11th) and Sunday (August 13th) concerts in Montreal went on as planned.
The accident appeared to involve one of Metallica's semi-trailers and another trailer hauling vehicles. "Some brackets for moving lights were destroyed, they rented follow spots from Solotech, everything is up and ready." Check out video footage posted by TikTok user @sammiebaby966 (below).
