Thank goodness for Metallica.
The Bay Area’s top-selling band of all time delivered another amazing show for hometown fans during Day Two (Saturday, Aug. 12) of the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.

And the whole shebang was punctuated with a big fireworks show, which came during an encore highlighted by “Nothing Else Matters” and, of course, the usual “Enter Sandman” closer.
