...and they don't even play at metal (or even slightly metal) festivals here in England... I'm sure the metal fans that would have liked to see them over here will be overjoyed...

Seems like we're finally be meeting each other then. See you there man! (EDIT: if we don't catch up at Graspop already)
That'll be the 4th time Metallica for me. And 2nd time this year.

What's really funny is Blabbermouth is spreading the rumor that Metallica will be headlining Ozzfest when they're in Europe for pretty much the whole summer.

Haha @ June 13...
This is gonna be the strangest show ever: http://www.bonnaroo.com/artists.aspx

Maybe next year Slayer will be playing at Hippie Jam Festivals like Metallica...
TimmyPix - 14.04.2008 at 21:25  
@Baz: They may not be playing Bloodstock or Download, but Leeds/Reading are more metal than Download this year! At least as far as headliners are concerned! Kiss? Lostprophets? The Offspring?
Bloodstock all the way this year

I will pay $97 only if I am completely sure they will play only songs from their good albums (and justice, ride the lightning and master of puppets) otherwhise I won't pay a penny.

forget that, i'm sure they will play post-and justice for all stuff, but i would never pay 97 dollars for metallica, even if they play only old stuff.
