Imagine that a festival can bring together all your favorite Rock and Metal artists/bands. And this unprecedented show that brings together 1.5 million lovers of good music. This concert has become much more meaningful in time because of some legends that are no longer present physically, just like the legendary Pantera guitarist, Dimebag Darrell. Only Monsters of Rock could accomplish this.
Tushino Airfield in Moscow was the only venue that would receive all these rock and metal music icons and legends to offer an epic show in a place where tensions at the political level were completely saturated. This concert represented a relief for many, and nothing more fantastic than your favorite bands are being with you on this historical period, the fall of the Soviet Union.
The bands that participated in the show were:
EST: Originally from Moscow, she was one of the first to sing for the big audience, however, they had to stop for a moment. Since during their presentation the violence was completely unleashed, giving way to clashes with the police, the organizers asked calmly to continue with the planned show, all this happened to the rhythm of “Bully”.
The Black Crows: Although the band was just presenting their first album entitled “Shake Your Money Maker”, they already had a lot of fame. Everybody was singing and losing themselves to the groove of “Everybody Must Get Stoned”. It certainly was a great performance by the Robinson brothers.
Pantera: One of the most iconic metal bands ever existed. The legendary band completely swept through this show, won hearts of millions of people from the Soviet Union with their irresistible energy. They completely lit the stage and everyone went completely crazy with the brutal presentation of “Cowboys from Hell”. There wasn’t anyone who did not want to be present in the interpretations of the mythical band. Pantera was one of the key members who made that day unforgettable, which remained forever in every music fan’s minds.
Metallica: Another spectacular metal band was presented that September 28, proved the whole crowd why they are one of the greatest. At that moment they were at the peak of their careers (of which no have currently come down). The magnificent “Black Album” was in charge of making the legend rise and hold, and “Enter Sandman” the spectacular song that immortalized the moments lived in the presentation.
AC / DC: The most anticipated band of the night, a true musical icon led by Brian Johnson was considered as the highlight of that show, the legendary band gave an explosive presentation of 16 songs, which were increasing in rhythm and intensity, causing great fury in the public.
The incredible festival is considered one of the best in history, because not only does it take a reputation for being one of the most massive, but it managed to bring together the best of rock and metal icons in one day and enters this count as the greatest Metal show ever existed in history.
