Woman gives birth at Metallica show 'as band plays Enter Sandman'

There are many unusual places where babies can be born, including lifts, cars and supermarkets.

One Brazilian baby is now the rock ‘n roll king.

Luan Figueiro, a two-day-old Brazilian boy, was born at the Couto Pereira stadium of Brazil’s southern state Parana to Metallica. His mum said that he heard Enter Sandman.

Metallica shared details about the birth with 8.2 million of their Instagram followers via the band’s Instagram Stories.


Joice M Figueiro bought tickets for the show three years back. She was 39 weeks pregnant, and was sitting in a designated area when her contractions started during Metallica’s set.

There were only three songs to go. The plan was to transport her to the hospital by ambulance. But, “there was no time.”

Ms Figueiro shared the news via Instagram posts in Portuguese and English, claiming that her son was born in the same stadium where Enter Sandman, the band’s greatest hit, was played.

She said that “the whole day was very crazy”, and added that she joked about the name of the little boy, James Ulrich, after Metallica frontman James Hetfield as well as drummer Lars Ulrich.

Ms. Figueiro stated that she received many messages regarding her son’s birth, and thanked all of her well-wishers.

She wrote, “I am physically great and trying to understand why this happened.” “Thank you to everyone for your love and concern.”

Although it was a rare birth, Luan isn’t the first to be born at a gig.

A woman gave birth to a baby girl in 2019 at Liverpool’s Anfield stadium. She was apparently named Dolly Pink after the Pink concert.
