'Headbanger's Ball' is FINALLY back and with it comes the first and only real METAL tour of 2003. Take note, top to bottom, this is how it's done. Headbanger's Ball Tour 2003."

Exact cities and venues will be announced soon. In related news, a double-CD compilation titled "MTV2 Headbanger's Ball" will surface through Roadrunner Records on October 7. The effort is expected to include material from the groups taking part in the upcoming tour as well as other, as-yet-undisclosed artists who are regularly played on the MTV2 program.
