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.
Loudwire: Metallica Book 2017 / 2018 European Tour Dates With Kvelertak Read More: Metallica Book Out 2017 / 2018 European Tour Dates
Good news, European thrashers! Metallica‘s ‘WorldWired’ tour is coming to Europe later this year and with another heavy dose of dates starting in early 2018! The band promised they’d be touring heavily in support of Hardwired… To Self-Destruct and with another 38 stops added to their routing, they’ve made good on their word.
Metallica are coming back to the UK!
The metal giants will be hitting up some of the biggest arenas in the UK this October, with support coming from Norwegian metallers Kvelertak. With every ticket purchase you’ll be entitled to a free copy of their latest album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, so keep your emails.
Former Beastie Boys DJ Mix Master Mike will be hitting the road with Metallica as the tour DJ for their Worldwired Tour. He joins the tour's opening acts, which include Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat and Gojira.
Immediately following our run of shows opening the new Royal Arena in Copenhagen last month we promised we would be back to Europe this year... and we will!! The WorldWired tour hits European arenas starting in September and doesn’t stop until May of 2018!
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. A pioneer in the hip-hop and DJ communities, you’ll be able to catch his skillful, hard-hitting scratch work once the doors open each night and between acts before we hit the stage.
Kirk Hammett guitarrista de Metallica dio su calificación a extraños covers de sus fans.
Metallica’s Kirk Hammett could be seen as the quiet member of the group. Hammet is George Harrison, taking a backseat to James Hetfield’s Lennon and Lars Ulrich’s McCartney. Kirk has always been viewed as the voice of reason, as the level-headed member when Metallica’s two primary egos have gotten a bit too heated.
Traas lanzar su disco 'Hardwired... To Self-Destruct', uno de los grandes momentos del tour 2017 de Metallica, se vivió en Ciudad de México. Y es que era alta la expectativa por su regreso a tierra azteca, toda vez que tocaron cinco años atrás. Sin embargo, esta ocasión era única, ya que celebrarían varios de sus clásicos. Fue así que tras dos memorables shows, llegó el momento para vivir el final del #WorldWiredMX.
Iggy Pop joined Metallica onstage during the encore of the band's Mexico City concert Sunday to perform the Stooges' "T.V. Eye."
"Metallica has much respect for the man coming out here to sing a song with us. And we're grateful that he's been able to be on this Mexico City tour with us," James Hetfield told the Foro Sol audience. "Please show your sign of respect and love to Mr. Iggy Pop."
Metallica have recorded and performed a bunch of covers over the years, paying tribute to New Wave of British Heavy Metal idols, punk influences and rock staples. Now, fans can add the Stooges‘ “TV Eye” to the list as the band tore into the proto-punk classic with the legendary Iggy Pop in Mexico City last night (March 5).
“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.
Metallica and Lady Gaga's "Moth Into Flame" team-up was one of the biggest bummers from this year's Grammys as a "technical snafu" plagued the promising performance. However, the collaboration goes off without a hitch in a new dress rehearsal video that Lady Gaga uploaded Friday.
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.
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?!?
Lars Ulrich, baterista de Metallica, dice que el grupo de heavy metal rechaza la construcción de muros en el mundo.
La banda se presentó ante más de 50 mil personas con su Tour World Wired en el que interpretaron los temas de su álbum 'Hardwired... To Self-Destruct'.
“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.
Despite their rough and rugged exterior, Metallica has always been a band that is interested in giving back. From Metallica’s annual contributions to the MusiCares MAP fund, to their Bridge School Benefit appearances, to their offering a large reward for a missing fan, Metallica has proven time and again that their hearts are in the right place.
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!
