The stadium has also hosted a number of other major events, including the Super Bowl and the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

Metallica’s record-breaking run at SoFi Stadium is a testament to the band’s enduring popularity. The band has been together for over 40 years and has released 10 studio albums, all of which have been certified platinum or multi-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
