Heavily pregnant tattooist Joice M. Figueiró was attending the heavy metallers' concert at the Estádio Couto Pereira Stadium in Curitiba when she started having contractions during their performance.

The music fan, who was 39 weeks pregnant, didn't make it to the hospital and her son, who she named Luan Figueiró, arrived into the world at 11.15 pm to the thunderous sounds of 'Enter Sandman'.

Sharing a picture of the newborn on Instagram, the new mother wrote in a translated caption: "When would I imagine that I would be at the Metallica show at 39 weeks pregnant and this boy decides to be born right there, three songs before the show ends, at Couto Pereira to the sound of ‘Enter Sandman’?”
