METALLICA To Perform At SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL

METALLICA will be performing at a private party for the film "The Darwin Awards", set to take place immediately following the movie's Sundance Film Festival premiere on Wednesday, January 25 at Harry O's on Main Street in Park City, Utah. The party is scheduled to begin at 11:00 p.m. and is not open to the public.

"The Darwin Awards" stars Joseph Fiennes and Winona Ryder and is described as "a twisted comedy about people accidentally killed in idiotic ways." METALLICA themselves appear in a scene that includes footage shot at a November 22, 2004 concert in Salt Lake City, Utah. Lukas Haas plays a drunken fan who attempts to sneak into the show, with tragic results (based on a 1998 urban legend).

As previously reported, METALLICA will travel to South Africa in March to headline the country's biggest international music festival ever. The Coca-Cola Colab Massive Mix festival will take place on March 18 in the city of Centurion, March 21 in Durban and March 25 in Cape Town. The shows will mark METALICA's first visit to the continent. Other artists confirmed to appear at the 12-hour concerts include SEETHER, COLLECTIVE SOUL, SIMPLE PLAN, FATBOY SLIM and a number of local artists.
