Recording Comments:
This was a great night of music for sure. It is always very humbling to see bands that are "Headliners" in their own right, taking a backseat to some of the greatest of all time, such as Metallica. The newly built stadium has a capacity of 73,000 and was occupied by a sold-out 55,000 people. I was roughly 50 feet back and to the mid-left on the Floor/GA. Due to the size of the stadium, my positioning on a very crowded floor and the lack of volume (compared to Metallica), this recording didn't turn out as good as I would've hoped. I also recorded both Volbeat and Metallica. The pictures included with this were taken with my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge at 12 megapixels and the video clip was also taken with it at 1920x1080 resolution.

Recording "Proof" Comments:
On track 03, "Critical Acclaim" at 5:34-5:47, M. Shadows says, "What a way to break this in. Fuckin' Metallica here tonight! Our friends in Volbeat, give it up for Volbeat".

* Please feel free to convert/chop/edit/share however you like. I only ask that you keep the Taper's notes and other files with it for posterity and context.
