METALLICA IN INDIA now!
Thrash pioneers Metallica are slated to play in India in October this year, bassist Robert Trujillo has said in an interview with the Inland Empire Weekly magazine.
Trujillo, who joined the band after Jason Newsted and original bassist, the late Cliff Burton, said Metallica has plans to play across Europe this summer, including appearances in Italy, Germany, Sweden, England and France in July, then Brazil in September.
This is consistent with rumours that the band has been signed up to perform at F1 Rocks alongside the inaugural Formula 1 Indian Grand Prix. Also, we are going to play India in October," Trujillo said. "That should be interesting, playing a place we never thought in our wildest dreams we'd (go) to play. It's an honor for all of us that we get to be a part of that whole music scene as a metal band sharing our music with fans in India at this incredible concert!"
