METALLICA SHOW IN ARENA PETERBURGSKY
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SAINT PETERSBURG

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).
