While Yanks battle Mariners out West, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax set to rock Yankee Stadium
Too bad for residents of the area surrounding the new Yankee Stadium, the environmental impact statement developers submitted to their local government never took into account the noise about to made by "The Big Four of Thrash Metal"—Metallica, Megadeth Slayer and Anthrax—tonight (Sept. 14) in the Bronx.
Quite the impact will be made indeed, but to hear it louder (designers/engineers did mitigate the noise from the $1.5 billion edifice, to be fair) and see it in person, it's going to cost an average of $228, according to SeatGeek.com co-founder Russell D'Souza.
And if that price isn't too steep for you, you're in luck—especially if you've been waiting for the price to drop.
"There are still several hundred tickets available from over 10 ticketing providers, so fans should have no problem finding the ticket they want, even with the concert right around the corner," D'Souza said. "Tickets have declined from their peak of $260/ticket in mid-June, so fans who waited in this case were rewarded with better prices."

In what promises to be a not-nearly-as-noisy Safeco Field, the Yankees and Mariners will square off in the finale of a three-game set.
It's fitting that Mariano Rivera(notes), sitting on 600 saves after closing out the Yankees' 3-2 win over Seattle on Sept. 13, is on the brink of tying and eventually shattering Trevor Hoffman's(notes) all-time record for saves: 601.
As crazy as it sounds, how appropriate would it be for Rivera, if called upon to close out another game for the Yankees, to be jogging toward the infield at Safeco while "Enter Sandman" is actually being performed by Metallica at Yankee Stadium—for the first time ever—at that very moment.
