Metallica Promotes Art Print For Sale at Minnesota State Fair
Metallica is one of the biggest rock bands in the world and they are promoting something for sale at one of the best fairs in the world.
The Minnesota State Fair will open its gates to the public tomorrow, August 25th, and along with the food, the rides, and all the entertainment, there is lots of stuff for sale. One of those items will commemorate a 1989 Metallica concert in Minneapolis.
The art print will be sold exclusively at the Minnesota State Fair by Rockabilia, they are located on Nelson St. near the KARE 11 barn, the print was designed by Brandon Holt and is limited to only 300, and each copy is hand numbered and signed by the artist.
The April 21st, 1989 concert was at the now demolished Met Center and it was Metallica's fourth show in Minnesota and just weeks before Metallica's first of two shows the band has played in Duluth, the first was June 8th, 1989 the second happened just two years later on November 9th, 1991. The last show Metallica played in Minnesota was at the Target Center in 2018.
The Chanhassen, Minnesota-based Rockabilia has an assortment of officially licensed stuff for sale exclusively at the Great Minnesota Get-Together from bands like the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Misfits, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and more. Many of the shirts available will commemorate shows those bands had in Minnesota at places like the Met Center, HHH Metrodome, and the Orpheum Theatre.
Metallica isn't playing a ton of shows these days, their next show is scheduled for the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park on September 24th. Look for that to change soon as the band has been busy working on a new album, but no date on a release yet.
