I happen to know a chick who is going to give me hell for posting this. She hates that there are so many Metallica stories on Gun Shy Assassin, and that’s whack. Sure — Metallica were monsters back in the day who’ve fallen out of favor with diehard fans in recent years, but yes: Metallica playing in India is still news and there are a ton of folks who still care.
Plus, a lot of people — according to Google Analytics — read this site in India. Not, like, millions but more than I ever expected. Rock on, India.
So yeah, Metallica have announced that they’ll be playing their first ever concert in India.
“At this stage in the game, there are very few places in the world that we have not dragged our gear and crew to, so that makes this show announcement extra special,” says Metallica’s site. “For the first time ever, we will be visiting India for two shows! It’s about time, wouldn’t you say?!?!”
I would say.
“Up first will be Delhi on October 28, 2011, at F1 Rocks, held in Leisure Valley, Sector 29, Gurgaon as we help to celebrate the first Grand Prix race ever held in India. Night number two will find us at the Bangalore Palace Ground, Main Palace, Bangalore, on October 30 as part of the Sonisphere festival,” the band added.
I was in India once. A long time ago…when I was young and in love with a woman with wonderful, heavenly boobs. It was a wonderful trip…like visiting a different planet. I loved it and I would go back there in a second…three days worth of shits and all.
