METALLICA have posted the following message on their official web site:

"We had such a great time when we did this back in the day in '95, which was . . . eh, like we had planned for '06, a year dedicated to nothing but writing and recording . . . Oh well how the best laid plans can change. So when we were asked, we figured why not do it again!!! Escape from the studio once more and spend our summer vacation hanging out at the coolest live music festivals on the planet.

"Here's what we have so far:

Jun. 03 - Nurburgring, GER - Rock Am Ring Festival
Jun. 04 - Nurnberg, GER - Rock Im Park Festival
Jun. 08 - Arnhem, NETH - Gelredome
Jun. 10 - Donington, UK - Download Festival
Jun. 11 - Dublin, IRE - Download Festival

"Please understand that we're making this up as we go along. We wanna keep you as in the loop as possible, but this shit is literally happening as we are typing, so please watch this space for more info as we get it regarding support acts, potential additional dates, change of something or other not expected as these VERY words are being typed, etc."

Sometimes, good bands just have to stop. Metallica used to be great (Master of Puppets), but now its just getting ridiculous (St. Anger, anybody? No, I didn't think so). Metallica left a lasting impression on the music industry. Many good bands have turned bad over time (System of a Down- before Hypnotize)
