"Joe attended Metallica’s concert Sunday night at Sofi Stadium," a source told the outlet. "He was in good spirits socializing with a group of men in the Metallica VIP room."
The source also noted that Manganiello was "seen speaking with an unknown woman," and he "stayed in the VIP area for 15 minutes then left with his celeb trainer friend, Ron Mathews."
Manganiello has been open about his love for the heavy metal band and revealed how he gave a nod to his favorite musicians during his wedding to Vergara, 51, back in 2015.
During a 2018 appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden, he shared how he walked down the aisle to a string rendition of "Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica.
"We have made the difficult decision to divorce," the former couple said in their statement. "As two people that love and care for one another very much, we politely ask for respect for our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives."
Manganiello was one of the handful of celebrities that rocked out at Metallica’s Los Angeles shows over the weekend.
The heavy metal band Pantera and drummer Charlie Benante, who plays in the group Anthrax and joined Pantera last year, shared photos from the night on Instagram.
The carousel of photos included a handful of selfies with his famous fans. “last night was a Blast! Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that I’d play [SoFi Stadium],” he gushed in the caption.
“But it gets better. Talking to @johntravolta about folding 2 slices of pizza together while walking and eating was hilarious. If you’ve seen the opening of #saturdaynightfever you’ll understand,” he continued, also adding hashtags that referenced the actor’s iconic roles later on, including “#pulpfiction” and “#greaseistheword.”
He continued, “Seeing Jason @prideofgypsies in the pit tearing it up was a highlight for me , made me work harder for sure- I 🖤him,” he shared.
