i feel sorry for anyone goin to the majority of those shows...cept the one with mastodon, metallica is nothing more than a bunch of f*cking sell outs, they need to get back thier metal roots and f*ck all that poser bull sh*t music like bfmv and him. metallica needs to return to how they used to be, but this shows thats not gonna happen anytime soon...more than likely at all. boo for metallica, f*cking sell outs.

Who every says that anyone sucks, you suck more than anything! If you don't like them, then say you don't like them, don't say they suck. I don't like bfmv cause obviously their NOT METAL! They haven't even earned the right to be on the same stage with metallica. I'm not gonna lie, I do like him, but yet again, what are they doing with metallica. They should take megadeth with them and see how much money they rake in then!

Man, sorry I'm late to this one. I got a few things I'd like to say real quick:

1)"Bullet for my Vocalist" is a great nickname for BFMV,

2) If Metallica and Megadeth toured, they'd get into a huge brawl on the first night,

2B) ...could possibly be one of the best goddamned tours anywhere EVER!

3) Who the fvck cares!?
