Several new photos of METALLICA rehearsing for its upcoming European tour have been posted online:
METALLICA's "Sick of the Studio '07" tour is scheduled to kick off June 28 in Lisbon, Portugal at the Super Bock Super Rock festival.
As previously erported, METALLICA will perform at the Live Earth concert in London on July 7, according to a post at the band's official web site. The band will join the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, FOO FIGHTERS, SNOW PATROL, THE BEASTIE BOYS, SPINAL TAP, MADONNA and others at the Wembley Stadium show, which is part of the 24-hour global series of concerts being held to raise awareness of global warming. METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich said in a statement, "I love my sons. I want them to 'inherit the Earth' FOR REAL! We keep waiting for future generations to solve the problems; to invent cleaner technology; to pay the costs...that's the same as passing the buck. I want the buck to stop here, now. I want lawmakers and laws to impose change. Nothing else will keep this world safe for my sons."
METALLICA's performance will be available to download for a minimal fee on iTunes and the band's live download site, LiveMetallica.com, shortly after the band plays. All proceeds from the sale of downloads will go to four climate organizations selected by METALLICA.
