I've long held that Metallica is the smartest business of any band. This kinda confirms it.
Not to mention the cities this festival has been in so far have a lot of casinos (Atlantic City is self-explanatory, Detroit has Greektown and others, and one of the biggest casinos in Canada is just a stones throw away in Windsor). I wouldn't be surprised if this festival ends up in Las Vegas down the road.
