Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich shared a recent photo of him and a die-hard Metallica fan, David Tsang on his Instagram page.

Ulrich also shared a really hard-to-believe story about Tsang.

Here is Lars’ statement:

“Quick story….
This is David Tsang

So I just landed at SFO a coupla hours ago and the first person who comes up to me at the baggage claim is Black Ticket holder David Tsang who it turns out has been on tour with Metallica the last two weeks just like I have… He traveled to all the shows on the leg and then flew back to San Francisco on the same plane as me … how fucking crazy is that??

Additionally, he lives super close here in the Bay Area…. and he’s going to Ireland in three weeks to join for more shows and shenanigans over the summer.

If this doesn’t confirm, illustrate and prove that Metallica for fuckin sure has the coolest, most dedicated and loyal fans in the known universe then I don’t know what the fuck does…??

And David’s story is just one of the countless incredible tales I’ve been told from you guys over the last few weeks…

Thank you David, thank you all you Black Ticket holders who follow us through thick and thin and thank you every single Metallica fan for your dedication and commitments. I’m so proud to call you all family! Much love…”
