Metallica

Closing the festival on 6th July

Lars Ulrich:

This just works on all fronts: Metallica and Knebworth, Metallica by Request, Metallica and Iron Maiden.

To be invited to co-headline the 40th anniversary celebration at the legendary Knebworth House is truly a frakk. Considering the iconic bands whose performances at Knebworth are part of rock and roll history, it’s not only a next level honor, but a somewhat humbling undertaking.

And what could be more fitting on our third Knebworth go-around than to play an all-request set, chosen entirely by the fans? We are soooo excited about the limitless possibilities of our friends picking what songs Metallica get to perform on this forthcoming evening from the nearly 140 songs we’ve recorded throughout our ride. Who knows what crazy challenges will be thrown our way? Maybe a song that has never been performed live before? Maybe a few deep cuts that haven’t been aired in ages? Maybe a couple of your toe-tapping favorites? An obscure cover? Whatever happens, it will be unique, it will be special, and it’s all up to you.

Add the cherry on top…co-headlining with Iron Maiden, who are a big reason that Metallica exists in the first place. Although we haven’t played together on the same day since 1988, this is the closest we’ve come for 25 years, and for all our fans who share the same love for Iron Maiden as we, the band members do, this will hopefully amount to what many rock fans would consider a dream bill.

BRING IT ON!!!


Fans who purchase tickets online will be invited to vote on the set list Metallica will play at the show – giving them the chance to help build their dream set list from 30+ years of Metallica’s material and close to 140 recorded songs to date. Metallica’s traditional 18-song set will include the 17 top voted songs and, as the band did not want to be left out of the fun, they get to vote for the 18th slot, which will be a brand new song! Fans will be able to visit http://www.metallica.com to see what songs fellow fans are voting for and the results of their specific shows.

Every ticket buyer will be issued a code in the next few weeks and can log their votes at Metallica.com

Mine was a bit slow to arrive after I bought my ticket in December so don't worry. Remember that Metallica by Request is for more than just Knebworth!

DId you buy your ticket out right or just put down a deposit? If the later you need to wait until you've paid the balance.

I've only seen the title and if it isn't a thrash version of this I'll be disappointed.

Yeah, it's pretty boring. Doesn't help that the band look like they can't be arsed either...

Those live recordings are all awful. Its really hard to hear whats going on at times.

Here's a studio demo of the song.



The riffs actually kick ass. The only bad things about it are the lyrics and hetfields vocals. But what do you expect from a work in progress? did anyone hear any of the death magnetic demo's? Jesus. Some of the things he was singing :lol:

When the album is eventually released, I would imagine they would have been refined properly. Thats if to say the song makes it on there.

I'm hearing all these rumours that Metallica are going to be headlining Glastonbury, bookies favourites and all this etc.

Correct me if I am wrong, but when they were announced I swear I heard UK Exclusive performance, e.g. they wouldn't be appearing anywhere in the UK in 2014 but Sonisphere?!

Bookmakers are full of shite. Neither band will headline Glastonbury.

Bookmakers are usually pretty clever with how they set odds for this kind of thing. They might have heard a rumour they know is bullshit but by naming Metallica as favourites some people might be convinced to bet on them which means Paddy Power are guaranteed to make money.

You mean the piece thst was linked? From the 28th of March?

Very elaborate rouse.

Goes to uni. Studies journalism. Spends all wages on bogus bets to manipulate odds at bookies. Writes piece a few days before April 1st.

Hats of to thiggy. Thats what I call future planning.

I like that the two pieces of evidence that support the rumour are the band saying that they've never been invited and every year it gets less likely that they'll play, and the organiser saying that he doesn't want bands like that to play. That really is some rock solid hinting right there. "So... you're saying there's a chance?"

lol - and the organiser has flat out said that Prince isn't happening. Is that really what counts as a rumour?
