...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...

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.

Kick Ass, Die Young

Less is More
Stay Pure
Stay Poor

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.

@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

And remember kids, don't play with matches - flamethrowers are much more fun!

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.
