Metallica will be playing a surprise show at Stubb's, Austin's legendary venue, on Friday, March 20 at 10 p.m. as part of the "Guitar Hero: Metallica" showcase at Texas capital's annual South By Southwest music festival.
Stadium headliner Metallica is going to play Stubb's, a venue that holds only 2,100 for the Guitar Hero: Metallica release party. Metallica's site says "There will be live music, a DJ, and of course the boys will be hangin' out . . . and who knows what else might happen!".
It will be a standard SXSW policy, with badges and wristbands getting priority. There will also be a line for those willing to pay cover, but admission will be based on space availability. But as Stubb's is an outdoor venue fans will be able to hear the band all the way to Hyde Park.
Starting Wednesday, March 18, there will be a three day "Metallica Madness" Guitar Hero tournament at the Best Buy store in South Austin, TX during the South by Southwest Music Festival.High scorers on each of the three days (one drummer and one guitarist plus a couple of runners up to make the "elite eight") will then move on to compete Friday night at a special Guitar Hero: Metallica release party at Stubb's, also in Austin, TX.
