The following comes to us courtesy of METALLICA's official web site at www.metallica.com:"Last year Metallica.com held a contest to celebrate the launch of the new website. 110 lucky winners were drawn. What was the prize? Well, 10 of those were Grand Prize winners who received a paid trip to San Francisco, as well as an exclusive tour of the coolest 'TALLICA spots guided by the boys themselves, have dinner with them, and then join the official launch party at night. The remaining 100 winners got an invitation to this exclusive launch party. Did we mention that there was also going to be bass player auditions at the party? Some lucky fan would have had the chance to be METALLICA's bass player for one night and one night only. Well, as you probably heard, the party was postponed, BUT now the band is back and ready to make good on all of their promises. "The party for all of the lucky winners is rescheduled and will take place on Saturday, July 6, 2002 and is to be held at a secret location in San Francisco. If you were not one of the contest winners, don't worry you will still be able to follow the party here online. More details to follow....and of course Clubbers will get the inside scoop."
