PiercingMetal Thoughts: Sad news for sure for those Metallica fans in the region but as I’ve pointed out a number of times before, this virus is not playing around in terms of large-scale events. As I write this I can share the news that numerous events I would be going to in early 2021 have been cancelled for that upcoming year and that just sucks. Of course, being healthy is much more important and I don’t want to be among the masses until we have this more under control. If you are one of our readers in this location we hope this news helped you and hope that you are all staying safe out there. Wear a mask, maintain some distance when possible and by all means do NOT throw your discarded mask into the streets. That’s disgusting. See you next time.
