Experiencing something for the first time holds a special place in our hearts. A 5-year-old did not expect what would happen when he attended the first concert by heavy metal band Sabaton (@sabatonofficial). The moment became even more special when a band member decided to stop the show to interact with the kid and encourage him. The video was posted on Reddit by u/stripedpixel and has received heartwarming responses. As the video began, the boy was sitting on his dad's shoulders as the crowd made space for them to come forward and talk to the rockstar on the stage, who was intrigued to see such a young child at a concert.

The rockstar asked the child his name. The boy replied, "Daniel." He then questions, "How old are you, Daniel?" Daniel indicated with his fingers that he was five years old. The Sabaton star was visibly shocked when he heard the boy's age and said, "Daniel, you have the coolest parents because my mom and dad wouldn't allow me to go to a concert when I was five." He said he would also encourage the boy to enjoy concerts on YouTube instead of coming to concerts for the time being. Nonetheless, he appreciated that the boy was there.

So, to show his appreciation and give the boy a good memory to take back home, the musician handed over his sunglasses to the boy, who was really excited to have them. As the band member announced, "Daniel, five years old," the crowd erupted in cheers and started screaming the little boy's name. It might become a core memory for the boy, something he will cherish forever. Everybody, including the boy, had their hands in the air as they celebrated him, making him feel special and noticed. The boy had the biggest smile on his face throughout.

u/Manthrill commented, "The band is Sabaton. They're a power metal group and their music depicts historical war stories (romanced, of course). Always have great concerts and seem like genuinely nice guys." u/Apence wrote, "Saw them at the Ryman in Nashville 2 years ago and the tank was awesome on the small stage. He also stopped the shop between songs to call out a kid positively and made his day. They're awesome dudes. He was like, 'I wished my parents were f***** cool enough to take me to a metal show.' Edit: He also gave his sunglasses to the kid. Must have bought a big pack on Amazon."

u/Selphis shared, "While they sing a lot about horrible stuff that happens in war, their shows are almost always a fun and happy event. I've seen them about 6 times now and they never disappoint!" u/DrBrangleBrungis remarked, "Metal bands/fans are very nice people cosplaying as aggressive scary people. Seriously, if you want to make friends, go to a metal show. The big guy with head and arm tattoos and a leather battle jacket with band patches depicting corpses and death will buy you a beer and be the nicest guy you'll meet." u/Ghost-138 expressed, "My eyes widened when I saw it is Sabaton that stopped the show for the kid. It goes to show that, of course, metal bands go out with kindness for others." Another user pointed out, "I've seen Sabaton live and they're wonderful every time. When I saw them last they invited a kid up to sing with them. It was fun."
