Just as the North American portion of the WorldWired tour was launching back in May, so was Lars’ very own Beats 1 online show on Apple Music. Lars' show It's Electric! airs each week on Sundays at 3:00 PM Pacific and takes an unscripted, unfiltered look into the wacky Danish mind of the drummer and the music that moves and motivates him. This week’s show kicks off three very unique, special episodes of music, stories, and interviews like you’ve never heard before as Lars hosts each of his bandmates, Kirk, Robert, and James!
First up in the hot seat is Kirk Hammett, airing this Sunday, July 30th with Robert on air next on August 6th; the Metallica series closes out with James on August 13th. A true first, Lars challenged the guys to come up with playlists of music that inspired them and contributed to the formation of each member as a musician and performer, making for three very different, dynamic shows.
Since It’s Electric premiered on May 7th, the show has featured guests Iggy Pop, Rancid’s Lars Frederiksen, Avenged Sevenfold’s M. Shadows, Royal Blood, Kabul Dreams, Glastonbury Festival co-organizer Emily Eavis, Rolling Stone’s Kory Grow, So What! Magazine Editor Steffan Chirazi, and more.
It’s Electric airs every Sunday at 3PM LA/6PM NYC/11PM LDN with an encore every Monday at 3AM LA/6AM NYC/11AM LDN. Listen live at apple.co/beats1onair. Tune in THIS Sunday for the first of three episodes with the members of Metallica.
