Metallica played a hometown show on Wednesday night, but fans weren’t the only ones able to hear the band’s performance.
People took to Twitter to complain they couldn’t sleep because of the noise.

Metallica played an outdoor concert at San Francisco’s Civic Center on Sept. 26. Per Loudwire, the benefit was a success and raised millions of dollars for the University of California San Francisco’s Benioff Children’s Hospital.
However, not everyone was happy with the event. Some neighbors of the venue complained that the sound was too loud, which prevented them from sleeping.
If you stand at just the right spot on Market street you can hear Metallica play Dreamforce because the sound is literally bouncing off the Twitter building. I don’t know what the analogy is here. But I feel like it’s something. pic.twitter.com/Uj0YJaU7A0

This Metallica set is so loud I’m pretty sure it’s going to topple the Millennium Tower and put like 17 more cracks in the Transbay Transit Center. https://t.co/rrDPsSGFXj

I mean, we love sleep too, but you can do it any other night.
Is Metallica almost done? I wanna go to sleep.

Literally Metallica: ha ha ha no

Is this Metallica’s fault or or whoever built this apartment?
Marc Benioff’s Metallica birthday concert is shaking the walls of my apartment from three miles away. Can someone please explain to me what Salesforce even does again?

We’re sorry for laughing… or maybe we aren’t.
If the @metallica show at @dreamforce wasn’t loud enough on its own, my building is definitely awake now thanks to the fireworks finale that activated the fire alarm on our roof and forced us to evacuate.

Metallica tour dates
Metallica recently announced they are hitting the road next year for another round of their “WorldWired” tour, and this time, it’s hitting the U.K. and Europe.
The band will be bringing Ghost and Bokassa with them on a 25-date trek across 20 countries.
“We promised we would be back… it’s the return of the European summer vacation,” Metallica wrote in an announcement on their website. “Following the attendance breaking indoor arena run that ended in May of this year, we are psyched to announce that we will be returning to Europe in May of next year to do an outdoor run of our own shows, primarily in stadiums, but also the occasional park and even a castle thrown in for good measure!”
The summer tour kicks off May 1 in Lisbon, Portugal and it wraps up a couple of months later on Aug. 25 in Mannheim, Germany. Check out the list of cities and dates below.
