After keeping fans in suspense for the last few weeks with a cryptic countdown clock Metallica finally revealed today what the "Metallica XX" messaging meant.
For the first time in their career and the first time in hard rock history, the band will headline all five, major hard rock festivals next year. Metallica will rock two, separate headlining sets at each stop. But wait....there's more: they'll perform a unique set list for each gig, making for 10 different shows over the course of the year. Here's more details on each Fest:
Epicenter will take place May 1-3 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, N.C. Welcome to Rockville will take place at its new location at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida, the weekend of May 8-10. Sonic Temple is on the books for May 15-17 at Columbus, Ohio's MAPFRE Stadium. Then, in the fall, Louder Than Life will take over the Highland Festival Grounds at the KY Expo Center in Louisville, Kentucky, the weekend of Sept. 18-20 and Aftershock returns to Sacramento, California's Discovery Park on Oct. 9-11.
