A Metallica concert has just been added to the list of strange places for a woman to give birth.
Two day old baby Luan Figueiró was born whilst the band were performing live in front of a crowd at the Couto Perreira stadium in Parana. The baby’s mother has also claimed that he arrived whilst Metallica were playing ‘Enter Sandman’.
What about that for a start in life?
The child’s mother Joice M Figueiró bought tickets for this long awaited show three years ago.
She also revealed that she was 39 weeks pregnant and was sitting in a special area of the show, when she began to have her contractions.
The original plan was to take her to hostpital in an ambulence. However, “there was no more time”.
Ms Figueiró later revealed that her child was “born right there” as Metallica were playing ‘Enter Sandman’ at the concert.
She also confirmed that baby Luan “came to the world on 07/05/2022 at 23:15, shaking all the metal structures”.
Having joked that she would name her child after one of the Metallica bandmembers Lars Ulrich or James Hetfield, she also added, “The whole day was very crazy”.
Ms Figueiró also thanked people for writing messages of support.
“I’m great physically and trying to understand how this happened”, she said. “Thank you for everyone’s love and concern”.

Metallica confirmed this news via their Twitter account.
