That’s right, folks.
The Grammys may not actually matter, but that’s not stopping Metallica from playing the show.
The band — who released an album once with Lou Reed — will share the stage with renowned concert pianist Lang Lang during the 56th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, January 26.
We all know what happened with that Lou Reed record; the band met him at the Grammys, and he talked them into the project. Let’s hope they don’t make an album now with Lang Lang.
“We’re honored to be asked back to the Grammys to perform…It’s been 22 years since the last time we hit the stage at the annual awards show!
“This performance will be truly special with Lang Lang, who has appeared on stages all over the world including the opening ceremonies at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, a White House state dinner, World Cup ceremonies, and the Nobel Prize concert in Stockholm among many other acclaimed appearances.
“We are also very proud that the ‘Through The Never’ soundtrack has been nominated for a Grammy for ‘Best Recording Package’ and we’re hoping for another win for our friends from Turner Duckworth, who also designed the Death Magnetic art and took home the mini gramophone in 2009.”
