Summer Sanitarium 2003 Update

"We want Summer Sanitarium to be the best stuff that's out there now. I hope - and think - that we have done that. The other so-called headliners, Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit, are the best at what they do in their worlds. Deftones and Mudvayne...they have a different style, we're getting heavy music together. The fans are getting their money's worth - there are a lot of worn-out fans when we go on. It's a long day, but it's a lot of quality." said James about the tour and the lineup.

The vibe between the bands is great and you always see members of other bands checking out each others' show. Backstage, Metallica has set up a special hangout for everyone, called the Rubber Room. If you're lucky enough to make it to the Rubber Room, you can enjoy plenty of food, drinks, air hockey, ping pong, and video games.

A lot of people probably don't realize how much it takes to get a huge tour…

St. Anger FAQ

1. My copy of St. Anger does not have a component (CD,DVD, or booklet). What do I do?

This depends on where and when you purchased your copy. The initial first manufacturing run of St. Anger around the world (in the millions!) all included both the CD and the DVD, along with the 28 page booklet. Subsequent pressings outside of North America and Japan may only include the CD and 28 page booklet - no DVD, unfortunately due to some record company restrictions. You may still purchase the full package of both the CD and the DVD, but the price may be the equivalent of 1-2 Euros more depending on your local retailer.

If you purchased the package in North America or Japan and are missing an element, we suggest that you return it to the store you purchased it at - you will probably need your receipt!

2. What happened to the metallicavault.com website?

Not Your Average Tour Review

So there we were, in Germany, in Nuremburg Germany, in FC Nuremburg's massive soccer stadium to be precise, when in walks a priceless little bit of Metallihistory with his old buddy Kirk Hammett...Scott Ian. yes, Scotty from Anthrax, the diminutive riff machine, the schizmated live aggro merchant, one of the main drivers behind Noo Yawk's most famous modern metallists. Scott and Kirk have been friends for many, many years, always sharing stories on a variety of subjects from guitars to movies. And the two bands have always shared times together...perhaps the most legendary stint happened in 1986 when 'thrax supported Metallica through Europe, when the Cliffage was flying, James was crashing all over the place on boards with wheels and both bands were quite literally raging 28/7.

So when the Metontourmesiter Nic suggested to me that y'all might really, no, REALLY enjoy reading what…
