Beto O'Rourke heads to a Metallica concert after making 2020 decision

Beto O'Rourke is running ... to Metallica's El Paso concert, apparently.

O'Rourke was spotted at the Texas show on Thursday night, according to journalist Ivan Pierre Aguirre, who posted pictures of the former congressman looking extremely out of place drowned in a sea of Metallica T-shirts.

O'Rourke had previously teased that he'd make a decision about whether he'll run for president in 2020 by the end of February, more recently saying on Wednesday that a decision about his future has been made and an announcement will come soon. But we're sad to report that a day later, O'Rourke did not, in fact, make history by becoming the first presidential candidate to announce his White House bid after smashing a guitar on stage at a Metallica show. Then again, with Metallica's ongoing tour making one more Texas stop on Saturday, it's certainly not too late.
