Greetings from Metallica HQ, where we're camped out writing songs and getting ready to head to South America for the first of our "By Request" shows later this month. We're having such a blast watching what you are choosing for us to play in South America and Europe, we're throwing another show in the mix - HEAVY MONTRÉAL as one of the headliners along with our friends Slayer, Lamb of God, Anthrax, Exodus and Apocalyptica during the festival taking place at Parc Jean-Drapeau August 9-10.
Two day passes as well as special travel packages for HEAVY MONTRÉAL will be available on March 7, at noon local time. Met Club members should log in for information about a special ticket presale.
Don't forget to help us pick the set list! It's pretty simple - pick up your ticket(s) and you'll receive a code and a link to a site on which you may cast your ballot. We normally play around 18 songs a night, and since we didn't want to be left out of the fun, the band also gets to vote... and we vote for A NEW SONG! That leaves the other 17 slots for you to choose, so vote for all your favorites from the close to 140 songs we've recorded in our career and to make it more fun along the way, you'll be able to follow what you and your fellow fans are selecting by watching MetallicaByRequest.com for continuous results.
