Metallica To Play Bulgaria For Record Fee

Band Photo: Metallica (?)

According to News.bg, METALLICA will play in Bulgaria for a record fee. The musicians have asked for the amount of $1.6 million to present their show on the national stadium Vasil Levski in Sofia. Similar was the demand of the other world famous band, which will visit us in the summer - KISS. Though, they agreed to please their fans and play in Bulgaria on May 16 for little more than half million dollars - $650,000 fee.

"They've lost all sense of reality" - Lol, I think it's you who's lost sense of the real world, according to the site Kylie Minogue won't be charging under a million and I doubt other large acts are playing Bulgarian shows for charity (which funnily enough Metallica does a lot of). Plus the huge touring entourage, stage show etc. Not forgetting that Metallica are undoubtedly one of the worlds most popular, biggest selling etc bands. But damn, Rob Trujillo must feel like the luckiest bassist in the world haha.

I disagree Kalis. I think Metallica can be compared to Led Zeppelin in the thrash metal world. Both have the biggest name and draw power in their respective genres (I would just class Metallica as heavy metal nowadays and I've always just classed Led Zeppelin as rock). Led Zeppelin would also be asking for this amount of money if not more I reckon.

before trying to smacktalk some1 elses intelligence be sure you have spelled all your words correctly. everytime you put THERE for THEIR. intelligence is something you need to know about for yourself! as always, the metalli-sheep get upset when their has-been geriatric heros are talked down upon! waaaaaaaaaaaaa waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. FUK METALLICA!

as for khalis, she workin and doin it the right way. not suing every1 she can to get the money she wants because she knows she is on the downhill slide like pu$$y-tallica! its just too bad lars's mother didnt abort him before he was hatched.

I've seen kiss live and it's the exact same show they've been playing since 1975. They're really loud and really good live, but if you've seen them once you've seen them their entire career. I've seen Metallica 5 times and yes the songs are the same as well, but it's never the same show. Anyway, even if they can get a billion dollars a show that's only because people will pay to see it. Until they have no one in the seats they will make all the money they want. That's the sum of the world, if you can play and people want to see you play, then you can be a billionare. If you suck then you can be (insert lame a$$ band) and be poor. I read these threads all the time and crack up at the comments from haters. It's cool if you 12 people hate metallica or slipknot or whoever else goes from nobody to king of the world tomorrow, The other 60 million people who pay for the cd's make other people gods. If you hate metallica for doing what they are supposed to do in life, "GET RICH" then that's on you not them. How about the basic fact, Metallica is the biggest and best metal band of all time, every band that you own a copy of would saw off their balls to be them. If not, then they are completely stupid and should have quit before they started.

Sure selloutica had their influence in the 80's and I'll even give them half of the 90's too and their music still influnces other bands on a massive level to this day. However, that doesn't change the fact that metallica is dead. Jame's voice isn't the same, the only thing Lars improves in is being in love himself, and Kirk's been playing like he wants to turn the band country. They might as well just change their name to 'Lica cause the "metal" is gone.

To be honest, as much as I like Sabbath and I do,they seem to me like more of a nostalgia act. People but their albums and (whenever they tour) go to the concerts because they don't want to believe or think that the band that arguably created heavy metal could have made a bad album or that they don't have it anymore. I've seen Black Sabbath (original lineup) and Metallica and I personally would say that Metallica were better. Sabbath really didn't have to do anything because they're just Sabbath and they did their fair share of crap albums too if I'm honest. I also think that Led Zeppelin were overrated madly lol.

By the way, yes Lars did pinch the name Metallica from his friend who was making a metal magazing which became "Metal Mania".

Diamond, I might be mistaken, but didn't Led make a sh!tload of money playing the o2 in London this fall? Just asking, my memory is foggy. Anyway, I only like Metallica up to the Black Album. Yes, they've had their influence on today's metal but I have to say it's pretty much over. Most people credit Dime/Pantera now, and that's just a generation type thing plus Dime's unfortunate murder. Honestly, influence is timed. I mean kids aren't going to want to say they were influenced by their parents' or grandparents' favorite artist. And grandparents is logical. If you were 20-30 when Sabbath hit it huge, you would be roughly 30-40 when Metallica hit it huge which would put you around 50-60 now, which is a completely legitimate age to become a grandparent.

As far as the money goes, I'd need to know more information to make an honest statement. How much will tickets be? How big is the crew and do they get paid from the 1.6 million? Does this include projected merch. sales? How long is their set? Is there an opening act? If so, does this fee include their cut? How much does the stage setup cost? Gas is outrageous in Europe. Maybe it costs a couple hundred thousand just move everything!

There aren't many people who would argue with the brilliance of Metallica's output throughout the 80's. But a lot of stuff has happened since to piss the fans off, and their overt love of the dollar can and does damage their credibility.
That said, if someone offered me a million bucks to play a show, I'd be laughing all the way to the bank.

I like old Metallica alot, but the last 4 albums suck in my opinion and on top of it all I really have not been impressed by them on a personal level.

no, its because we have grown to hate a band thast turns on the ones who got them where they are. all that ever comes out of their mouths is the same boring BS over and over. and we are not the only ones who feel this way, just we are the ones who are not afraid to speak our minds. so go ahead and smacktalk us all you want, because i laugh everytime. it apparently pisses you off enough to bash back. so what that we talk smack on this band. it is an open forum. we do not threaten them with death or any kind of physical violence. we just say what we feel. freedom of speech, just as you are free to say what you feel about us.!!

What's really stupid is how longhorn asked if you knew how to play any Metallica. Like that matters. ONE was the first guitar song I learned how to play, and that was in 1989. Who cares if you can play someone else's music? The real question to ask her would've been "Can you WRITE any music better than the first four Metallica albums? To which the answer would, obviously be no.

I know so many guitar player amateurs who think it's so cool that they can play the f***ing Holy Wars intro, or the beginning of Master of Puppets, and they never realize that it makes them look lame. I think if you're good enough to play any of the music on the first four metallica albums consistently and ably, then you need to put the f***ing tab book down and write your own music. Then maybe metallica could have some competition from a band other than, oh, let's say, 36 Crazyfists.

Kalis, don't worry if you can't play any of the old Metallica. Metallica can't either!

Well thank you for the support CTJJ. I will admit that I am not a guitiar player. I just never had the patience to learn it and am a singiner by nature. Being able to steal from a band is easy, but being able to write your own is another story. I have writen some great songs with the help of my father who would take what I wanted to make it sound like and put in the guitiar part. I am sure he still has those tabs and what we wrote and will one day record them.

citrus tea, there is a big difference from David Ellefson or Jason Newstead playing music that one of their bandmates wrote, and Matt Johnson from Goatface, Montana who just learned to play the intro to "...And Justice For All". Everyone has that one guitar player friend that thinks he's hot shxt because he can play a Children of Bodom song, but leave the fxcker alone in a room with a guitar, a pen, and a blank notebook and you can almost hear his motor skills imploding.

That's the point I was trying to make. Unless you are James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammet, Rob Trujillo, Jason Newstead, or Cliff Burton (you're not) nobody should even start to give half a shxt whether or not you can play Mater of Puppets. It's a sweet song, and it's tough to play, but learning to play it only shows how well you can learn others' songs.

I had a friend who could play Nevermore, CoB, Opeth, and all that crazy shxt, but when it came time to sit down as a band and mindmeld some shxt, he couldn't handle it. So, I told him me and the bass player would write the main parts, and he just had to come up with little embellishments, and he was too self-critical and lame to do that, so he got kicked out of the band.

Look, you can either spend $30 on a tab book, or you can spend that money on educational materials instead. I bought all 4 of the Guitar Grimoires over a humungous Bob Dylan tab book and I don't regret it.

And as far as Guitar Hero goes, I killed all of them on Expert, so I really don't see why all the hate from people who play real guitars. It's not like GH is trying to pass itself off as real guitar or anything. I actually thought it was a fun little distraction, and it also taught me little nuances in a bunch of good songs that I never realized were there. And, after all GH games are said and done, I think I might have improved my dexterity a little bit.

Exactly.

The only thing I disagree with is the playing-other-people's-songs thing. I mean, it's cool to have a cover in your setlist, but being in a cover band certainly isn't as lavish as GH or RB make it out to be. I always found something strangely desperate about playing covers. I do know that Trivium's Master of Puppets pretty much made me hate covers. That is, until I heard Ministry's new cover of Roadhouse Blues.

For your information - Machine Head's "Burn My Eyes" is as good or better than any 80's metallica albums....quote me on it. Machine Head, Anthrax even Prong made thrash as good as metallica. Sorry, pal, but MetalliCRY is not the BE all to end ALL. In fact, for your information, I was not a huge fan of early metallica thrash...and cannot stand Exodus or Testament. I would take Kreator or Entombed over them. Machine Head and Skinlab is good bay area thrash. I must admit, though, that Metallica is talented and a great band.

I spend a decade writing and playing with bands doing all originals, and I absolutely hated the idea of playing covers. However I was persuaded to join a Pearl Jam tribute act ....and...being able to play to packed houses was very satisfying. Nowadays I play local pubs & clubs with an acoustic, covering everything from Slipknot to STP, with a couple of my own thrown in. Maybe not your taste, but this enables me to bring a whole bunch of rock/metal songs to an audience who otherwise would never hear them. I don't feel the need to prove anything, I just love playing music.

Personally I stopped criticizing grammar a long time ago because some people suffer from disorders like dyslexia, which there are ways around but I think it unfair to expect them, or anyone to type a grade A college paper in a forum. That is unless I see a need to point this out.

I disagree with that - tab books are educational materials for most people. Funnily enough, lets take James Hetfield as an example, think he ever spent time with musical theory and educational guitar books? Cuz I bet like most metal-heads he just learnt NWOBHM songs and then developed his own style from there. Personally I know a buttload of Metallica tunes on guitar (just mastered that hellish Battery riff because stamina has never been my thing), and from that I use what I've learnt to write my own material (Cynic/Watchtower-esque stuff). But beyond that I play Metallica songs for myself, not for anyone else.

I think the point is the music they wanted to make was music that earned them millions of dollars. They weren't going to studios with the mindset of "this will be our greatest album on every level." They went in asking "how can we write a record that will make us rich?" I only put those in quotes to set them off; they're not actual quotations from the band, but you can get that vibe from snippets of interviews. Anyway I'm not going appreciate music that I think is sh!t, and that's my right. This is how music progresses, not by repetition, or imitation. With all of that said however!

To post 103 - How old are you? 5 years old? You call yourself a European? I don't really like Metallica all that much, same with Branded420...so when did we claim we loved metallica. In fact, I was not a big fan of Metallica in the beginning. They are talented, and successful, but I have never bought any of their old sh1t. I could care fukkin' less about whether metallica becomes rich or NOT.

I wouldnt really call what Metallica has been putting out music. Not to me anyway, music is passion and Metallica just doesn't seem to care anymore. If you've been a real fan for the majority of your life, than I know you can feel it. It seems like they are just half assing themselves to the end of their career. And I'm not one of those people who thinks Metallica owes them cause I own most of their sh**. If anything Metallica has helped me through an unbelievable portion of my life and it felt extremely difficult for me to give up on them because I feel I owe them. But I refuse to join the ranks of the "Metallisheep," as brandedcfh420 calls them, and keep false hope of the old Metallica coming back. They are not the same band and they never will be. If the new album truly turns heads, I'll be the first to admit I was wrong

to comment number 111. I don't think that you have ever seen Metallica's movie. Obviously you havent. Watch the passion that they put into the f***ing lyrics, and music.

are you refering to some kind of monster? well, lets see. i do remember seeing a counselor in there helping them with their "emo" feelings! what a fukin joke. if any band needs a counselor to help with inner feelings then that band has reached the end of their careers, no matter how many records they put out after the counseling of "emo-tallica's" "some kind of emotional jackoff sessions"...if they would have taken those inner emo-feelings and put it down in lyrics and music im pretty sure they would still be a band to be reckoned with. but, as it stands they are a joke of a band that does whatever they can to stay in the limelight, just like axl poser!!!!

This has veered completely off topic and needs moderation! And, I can't believe I'm agreeing with Latigid but we are gun crazy here in America, but there isn't a realistic way to solve our gun problem. There are so many unregistered guns sold or readily available it would be near impossible to eradicate them. With that said, the government should step in so we don't appear as apathetic to the situation. And I am more than willing to admit I worry about being shot! We have some fvcked up people here!

50-50 on that one. if someone cant handle their own emotions and needs a counselor then they are a weak minded prissy! but some people have mental disorders and truly cant help it and truly need help from a counselor. as for metallica, like i said, put all these inner emotions into the music, not use them to attack eachother and the fans. i have never seen or ever needed to see a counselor. i have pages and pages of writings when my inner emotions began to surface on the outside. i put it all down in words, poems, songs, mindless ramblings, etc.. all they, metallica, did was make a very homo dvd and then the metallisheep bought it up like it was candy. blind sheeple!!...baaaaa baaaaaaaaaaa baaaaaaaaaaaaa..........

haha, DIE, psychiatrists are so dumb. i went to one before because my school counselor recommended it to my parents. it was a total waste of time. it was $100 a session and most of the time he just talked about himself and wasted 10 minutes of my time each session by taking me to some cookie shop because he was on his "break" even though it was my time he was eating up. even my dad thought something was wrong. when he went to pick me up, all he saw was this overweight old man sitting on a reclining chair with crumbs sitting on his shirt that have been there for over 45 minutes.

I agree to an extent that psychiatrists are dumb. The current roster, if you will, of psychiatrists suck. They treat the issue and not the person, or neither. If I had listened to the one I saw I'd be suicidal. Essentially her theory was life sucks, accept it and your misery. That's bs! Life is what you make of it.
