Metallica has issued the following announcement about performing at next year's edition of the Rock in Rio festival:

"We know it’s pretty nutty to announce a show almost a year in advance...certainly not something we’ve ever done before! However, when we were asked to headline the original Rock in Rio, the one actually in Rio de Janeiro (!!), we just couldn’t say 'no.' After playing at other Rock in Rio festivals in Lisbon and Madrid years past, it seemed like it would make for a fun break from whatever (??!!) we might be doing a year from now.

"So we hope you’ll dig up a 2011 calendar and mark off September 25, 2011 for a date with ‘Tallica in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Tickets go on sale on November 19th, 2010 only at the Rock in Rio official website. Other points of sale will be available only after July, 1, 2011."
