The big Metallica show in Newton is just one day away! The venue is expecting a huge crowd for the concert that will benefit The Native Fund. I've had DOZENS of calls from listener's asking all kinds of questions.....I found this info from the Iowa Speedway official web page. Here's what we know at the moment:
