Date: April 21, 1989
Location: Bloomington, Minn.
Venue: Met. Center
Queen Of The Reich
Notes: This was the last show Queensryche played supporting Metallica. They became a regular headliner after this. True to tradition, Metallica and their crew played a number of pranks on QR this night, such as unplugging amps and generally messing with the band while they were playing.
From attendee Todd H.: "You are being quite kind in saying Metallica played pranks! The finale that night was "Eyes of a Stranger" like you have posted, but I recall Metallica sending out a bunch of male strippers who were doing what male strippers do...pose, grind, spraying whipped cream, etc...and QR never missed a beat!"
