During their tour stop at Los Angeles' SoFi Stadium on Sunday night, there were some high-level Hollywood stars who came out to show their support. Pantera drummer Charlie Benante (also of Anthrax fame) shared some backstage photos on the band's account as well as his personal page showing top-billing actors Jason Momoa and John Travolta smiling and snapping shots with all of the band members while backstage after the show,
"Last night was a blast," Charlie captioned his post. "Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that I'd play there. But it gets better. Talking to John Travolta about folding 2 slices of pizza together while walking and eating was hilarious. If you've seen the opening of 'Saturday Night Fever' you'll understand."
Benante also shouted out actor Jason Momoa who he says he spotted in the mosh pit "tearing it up," admitting his enthusiasm "made me work harder for sure." Also featured in his post were candid shots with Vanderpump Rules' Thomas Sandoval, model and actor Adria Arjona, fellow drummer John Tempesta, Volbeat guitarist Rob Caggiano, and Mötley Crüe's John 5 and Tommy Lee. Famed British photographer Ross Halfin was also at the show, as well as Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello -- both of whom also shared some fun photos of their own from the night.
In addition to the celebrity sightings, Metallica has also announced that with the two sold-out L.A. concerts, the band now holds the highest single-show attendance record ever at SoFi Stadium. Congrats, boys!
