A dog who snuck out of her yard to go rock out at a Metallica concert on her own has gone viral.
The heavy-metal band were playing Los Angeles‘s SoFi Stadium on August 25 and appeared to earn themselves a new four-legged fan.
During that concert, Storm the husky was spotted casually taking a seat and metal enthusiasts were quick to capture the hilarious moment and post it on social media.
Metallica themselves even quipped in their Facebook post: ‘She had a great time listening to her favorite songs, including Barx Æterna, Master of Puppies and The Mailman That Never Comes.’
After the show, the Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation posted a picture of Storm, where her owner, Arizbeth Hurtado, saw it and picked up her adventurous canine.
In their post, Metallica revealed Storm was ‘safely reunited with her actual family the next day.’
They added: ‘And in case you were wondering, no. You definitely shouldn’t bring your furry friends to [the show]. But this dog sure did have her day.’
Owner Arizbeth explained that Storm ‘escaped from her yard.’
After taking her dog home, she posted a wholesome picture of the two laying down and her blowing a kiss at Storm.
‘Our baby is home and safe!!! Thank you guys,’ the owner wrote.
Arizbeth reposted the viral articles about her pup and wrote, ‘She’s all famous and s***,’ with a laughing emoji.
The Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation also reassured people that Storm was ‘cared for and loved.’
‘Thank you to everyone who helped to share the post. Happy that the dog found its way home,’ they wrote in their post.
Metallica also commented on the dog’s return, writing: ‘We’re thrilled our newest fan made it home safe!’
‘Hope she enjoyed the show,’ the band added with a rock symbol and black heart emoji.
Dog lovers joined in on the conversation on social media and were impressed by Storm’s great taste in music.
One person wrote, ‘I bet she howled her tail off at Of Wolf and Man,’ alongside a smiley face wearing sunglasses emoji.
Another added: ‘Storm knew greatness when she heard it! Canines are great at detecting awesome people.
‘The fact that she enjoyed the concert, just made her a legend! Rock on Storm!’
A third chimed in: ‘This is so epic!! You can tell she is just taking it all in and enjoying herself. Everyone loves Metallica.’
One commenter gave some future pet advice, writing: ‘Can you put a collar with ID tags on [her] ([her] name and your contact number) asap please!!
‘He’s bound to escape again and it’ll be much easier to reunite. You’re very lucky [she] was unharmed and returned home safely.’
