Jason Momoa celebrated his new title by throwing elbows and banging his head at one of the greatest metal shows around. The "See" star was recently crowned one of GQ Australia's "Men of the Year," and rang in the honor by attending the Slayer show on Saturday night. Taking to Instagram, Momoa shared a photo of himself and his two children, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa and Lola Iolani Momoa, getting ready to rock out outside The Forum in Inglewood.
The Slayer show at The Forum was the final curtain call for their "Final Campaign" farewell tour and brought out stars like Metallica's Kirk Hammett, Joe Manganiello, Anthrax's Scott Ian to party onstage and hang out backstage. Momoa shared a bunch of photos and videos from the evening and wrote about how special the experience was.
"going on stage and yelling love love LOVE with my baby boy and pantera. aka @philiphanselmo and the illegals my mind was blown FUCKIN BLOWN. i was living out my childhood dreams. i am so thankful for those moments shared with dear friends and my babies."

A Huge Honor
After being bestowed the honor of one of GQ's Men of the Year, Momoa spoke about what drives him every day to be better. He also said his wife, Lisa Bonet, is still not convinced he's as great as he thinks he is.
"when i was told i was going to be one of the men of the year i was shocked and surprised but hopefully its because i’m busting my ass trying to stop single use plastics and kicking up dust trying to stop a telescope getting built on our sacred mountain in hawaii. regardless. i look up to a lot of different people and if i have any impact on anyone like they do one me. then it’s to be an activist to do right with our voices follow our hearts. spread aloha. ohana is everything and have a beautiful time on this planet. i got a lot of work to do. we all do all my aloha. so stoked to be GQ Australia’s Man of the Year, thanks to @mojeanaria for presenting my award on the night. i couldn’t be there being it was thanksgiving and i was so thankful to be home with my ohana.
