A heavy metal fan who went to a Metallica concert at 39 weeks pregnant has revealed she went into labor just as the band started playing Enter Sandman.
Joice Figueiró went into labor as Enter Sandman blared out at Couto Pereira Stadium in Curitiba on Saturday night.
The tattoo artist even joked she would name the boy James Ulrich after guitarist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich.
Metallica was three songs from wrapping up its concert and was in the middle of interpreting its hit song ‘Enter Sandman’ when Figuieró began to have contractions.
Her husband Jaime Figuieró sought help from a team of paramedics at the concert venue and her doctor, who also happened to be at the show, immediately rushed to her seating area.
She delivered a healthy Luan Figuieró at 11:15 pm local time. He weighed 6.7 pounds.

‘When would I have images that I would be at the @metallica show 29 weeks pregnant and this boy decides to be born right there,’ Joice Figueiró wrote on Instagram.
‘Every show I go to something has to happen, but this time I think I’ve outdone myself haha.
‘Luan Figuieró came to the world on 05/07/2022 at 23:15 shaking all the metal structures haha.’
Metallica share the news of the birth of their newest fan, Luan Figueiró, who was born at their show in Brazil on Saturday night
Joice Figueiró and her husband initially purchased the Metallica concert tickets in April 2020, but the show dates were postponed on two occasions.
A new date was announced in October 2021, but the family never figured they would welcome their second child as their favorite band performed.
Luan Figuieró chose the perfect song to enter the world.
His mother joked that she would name her child after James Ulrich, the band co-founder and drummer.
‘The boy was born at the end of the show, (during) the last song, the most famous, the one that my father liked the most,’ Jaime Figuieró told Brazilian news outlet G1.
‘There was no better script for the story. I cried a lot with emotion. The song itself has a meaning because it was the one that my father like the most.’
Her story was shared by Metallica on the band’s Instagram page yesterday.
