The first and last time I got in the pit. There was a lot of build up to this, the first show of the Metallica/Guns N’ Roses stadium tour with MTV News broadcasting live outside. My buddy Eric was there, and we got down pretty close to the front for Faith No More’s set. There was a lot of pressure from the back, but we hung on until the first song of Metallica’s set and the front half of the stadium became an enormous mosh pit. I went under for a second, then beat a retreat to the back where I stood and watched the rest of the set. There was a long break, at least an hour, between bands. People were starting to throw trash by the time so the camera crew found girls in the crowd and urged them to lift their shirts and it felt like it was getting rowdy, but Guns N’ Roses finally took the stage. Still a great show though.
