Flemming Larsen, Lars Ulrich’s drum tech who filled in for him on drums with Metallica in 2004, has tragically died, according to a Metallica Reddit thread.
Metallica member Lars Ulrich recently took to his Instagram account and posted a picture with the Weezer members. The picture was captioned with the following:
“Nice to hang with the fellas in @Weezer and share the stage here at @BostonCalling.
Check out their next level version of Sandman on the #MetallicaBlacklist album if you get a chance.
Thank you 🙏 for being a part of the album.
Boston Calling saw some changes
Boston Calling recently suffered a huge blow. The Strokes were previously set to perform a headlining set on Saturday night at Boston Calling 2022. But unfortunately, they would not appear at the festival due to a positive case of the pandemic-causing virus. Instead of The Strokes, Friday’s headliner, Nine Inch Nails, performed a second headlining set on Saturday night.
The Strokes being unable to perform is an unfortunate event for Boston Calling, which already had to replace all three of its original headliners from the Boston Calling 2020 festival.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers, originally set to perform at Boston Calling 2020, had to back out, and are instead set to play a concert on Sept. 10 at Fenway Park. Rage Against the Machine, who were confirmed as a headliner in late 2021, had to back out in January 2022.
Foo Fighters, the third original headliner, had to cancel their appearance due to the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins. Along with the two headlining sets from Nine Inch Nails, Metallica will perform a headlining set on Sunday as scheduled.
