It was Mandalay Bay mayhem when the heavy metal fans of Metallica collided with the Las Vegas Rock and Roll Marathon runners bulking up with their pasta party over the weekend.

It certainly was easy to tell the two groups apart, though! The marathoners were trim and fit, in running shorts, jogging suits and Elvis attire, while the music fans were in jeans and boots and with plenty of long hair.

However, in this clash of cultures, it was total respect for each other, with one group cheering on the other simultaneously in a chorus.

Our contributing photographer Erik Kabik was front and center for the Metallica concert and stage antics, as the band played to a sold-out Mandalay Bay Events Center audience on Saturday night. And check out our Las Vegas Sun colleague Michael Mishak’s review of the show.
