On July 18, 2008, Metallica performed in St. Petersburg as part of their World Magnetic Tour. This was the first and long-awaited visit of the famous “metal-rockers” to the big city on the Neva river. The show of your favorite group was attended by about 20 thousand spectators. The concert took place at the Sports and Concert Complex – “Peterburgsky”. Today this unique building not anymore (it was destroyed in 2019-20).
For this show, at one of the largest indoor arenas in Europe (at the time), JSA SPb installed a large stage based on Layher Allround Scaffolding and provided the production team of Metallica with 40 Prolyft chain hoists (lifting capacity 1000 kg). It was a good promotion for this product, since JSA was the exclusive partner of PROLYTE PRODUCTS / GROUP for the sale of their products in Russia and in Ukraine (from 2003 to 2013).
