METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett is continuing his partnership with Nuclear Blast for an appearance at next month's Comic-Con International in San Diego, California at the Nuclear Blast / Stern Pinball / KVH Toys / JSR Merchandising booth (#501).Fans in attendance who buy these limited-edition figures (see photo below) at the booth are guaranteed a ticket to visit the Nuclear Blast / Stern Pinball / KVH Toys / JSR Merchandising booth (#501) on Saturday, July 11 for either a 1:30 p.m. or 3:30 p.m. signing session by Mr. Kirk Von Hammett himself! The limited-edition nine-inch vinyl figures production numbers are 100 Tomb Mummy Green and 50 Tomb Mummy Metallic Green, 100 Bad Brains Green and 50 Bad Brains Metallic Green. These are expected to sell out fast. METALLICA currently has 10 dates on its calendar between now and mid-September, including this year's edition of Lollapalooza, which will take place at Grant Park in Chicago, on July 31, August 1 and August 2. The band has reportedly been working on its tenth studio album, which will follow up 2008's "Death Magnetic". METALLICA has made available for purchase a limited-edition box set containing 50 CDs that chronicle the band's tours of Australia and New Zealand in 2010 and 2013. The set features recordings of 62 different METALLICA originals and covers from 25 different shows, each on two discs, and retails for a hefty $395. Despite insisting that work has been proceeding on a new CD, METALLICA has spent a lot of time outside the studio in the last year, with activities that included a string of European all-request shows last summer, a week-long residency on "The Late Show With Craig Ferguson", and a Rock In Rio USA stint.
