Watch Metallica perform with a 13-year-old drummer for his birthday

A dream come true.

A young Metallica fan was in for a treat when the band recently invited him onstage to drum on “Seek & Destroy” during the Amsterdam date of their WorldWired tour.

The lucky boy was none other than Evan Adamson, who was celebrating his 13th birthday. As Evan went up the stage, lead singer James Hetfield joked, “Oh god, Lars [Ulrich] shrunk. They put Lars in the wash. Told them not to put him in the dryer.” After some words of encouragement from Ulrich himself, Evan kicked off “Seek & Destroy” with impressive showmanship in front of thousands of fans at the Johan Cruijff Arena.
