Acoustic-4-A-Cure IV Show Announced

This year’s fourth annual Acoustic-4-A Cure show created and curated by James and Sammy Hagar will be held on Monday, May 15, 2017 at San Francisco’s historic Fillmore Theater. Those of you astute Metalli-watchers know that the band will be on tour in North America at that time so, unfortunately, James will not be able to join Sammy and guests on stage, but will certainly be there in spirit. Sitting in this year will be none other than Dave Grohl and he and Sammy will be joined by Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, Don Felder, Mick Fleetwood, Vic Johnson, Sarah McLachlan, Steve Vai and Bob Weir.

The party will roll all night long during the North American WorldWired tour as we’re psyched to announce that award-winning DJ and producer Mix Master Mike will be spinning some of your favorite (and ours!) hard rock and metal tracks throughout the evening at all of the stadium dates this summer.

Sopitas: “Metalero eres y metalero serás”, el mantra de los conciertos de Metallica

“El metal no se crea ni se destruye, sólo se transforma”, escuché decir a uno de los miles de fanáticos que estaban a punto de ingresar al Foro Sol para ver a Metallica. No sé bien a qué se refería ese sujeto (quizás sólo a las latas de cerveza que ya se había empinado), pero el hecho de que las cosas cambien y en esencia sigan siendo las mismas, es lo que se le olvida a los ahora detractores de la banda californiana.

Medium: Kirk Hammett - Metallica’s axe man on horror, metal, death and destiny

Today is Kirk Hammett’s 54th birthday. In years gone by, the Metallica guitarist would have celebrated by getting higher than Tony Montana. But today his vice of choice is coffee laced with almond milk. Sitting in a Kensington hotel room wearing a brown snakeskin jacket and black skinny jeans, Hammett readily admits that he’s amazed to have survived this long. After all, extreme music, extreme adulation and extreme hedonism have characterised his life thus far.

Grammy Videos – Performance and Rehearsals

Perhaps you've heard by now that we experienced a slight bit of a technical difficulty when we hit the stage at the Grammy Awards with Lady Gaga a little over a week ago... hmm, would that qualify as an understatement?!?

Sopitas:El furioso rugido de la bestia: la primera noche de Metallica en el Foro Sol

“Pinches juniors ch%&$# a su madre, cuando quieran pedo aquí lo encuentran”, es la frase clave de un hombre a quien decidimos nombrar #LordMetallica, el ejemplo perfecto de la euforia del público ante la tardanza de una hora, que Metallica se dio el lujo de hacernos esperar. Entre lluvias de vasos conmemorativos, cerveza y los primeros malacopa de la noche (que no aguantaron nada), un sujeto de complexión robusta, más de 1.90 de altura, y unos lentes tan pequeños que se encajaban en sus ojos con sus gestos de coraje (imagine a su cadenero favorito), comenzó a cantársela a quien se cruzara en su camino mientras seguía estafándole alcohol a su amiguito y orinando a las personas junto a él.

You Pick The Opening Bands in Mexico City

We’re having a blast hanging out with the best of the local music scene as we zig-zag across the globe, so just as we did with the recent run in Copenhagen and in some of our favorite Latin American countries in the Fall of last year, we’re asking you to choose who you want to see take the stage first in Mexico City. As you may know, our friend and musical icon Iggy Pop will be joining us there, but there’s plenty of room for one more act!
