American heavy metal veterans Metallica has announced that they have added a show in Christchurch, New Zealand to their tour of the down under this September. A message from the band reads as follows:

"You asked (okay, demanded!) and we heard ya. When we got wind of the massive petitions for us to come to Christchurch, New Zealand we just had to check it out . . . and wow, the number of requests were overwhelming! So, the moral of the story is to be careful what you wish for . . . because 'Tallica is coming to your town on September 22 at CBS Canterbury Arena!

"Now here's the catch - our production team scoped it out over the last couple of weeks and no matter how hard we tried to re-configure it, the bottom line is the CBS Canterbury Arena is just not equipped to handle the in the round "Death Magnetic" show that we've been carting around the world on this tour. That's not going to stop us, but we wanted to let you know that we will not be able to bring the full set up that you may have seen in photos on the site or will see if you happen to hit another show in New Zealand or Australia. It's gonna be us and YOU old-school "club style" in an arena making a whole lot of noise together, and that's what counts.

"Tickets go on sale July 15 at 9:00 AM with the MyTKT pre-sale starting July 13 at noon. Fan Club members should check www.metclub.com for information about a special pre-sale for them starting on July 9.

"Thanks for all the love and support . . . see you in September!"

LOL @ 1
Yeah, everyones getting f***ing excited, but really. Don't count your chickens till they hatch mate. You remember what happened last time? The site f***ing crashed. Yes.
It will most probably do that again.
I'll be f***ing STOKED if I get tix though, because I hated their Death Magnetic centre stage setup thing anyway.
Old school is the way to go. Will be a f***ing good night
