Metallica To Play Black Album In Full at Music Fest
The three-day festival runs June 8-10, 2012 at its regular home in Donington Park. Metallica posted the news: "To help celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Download Festival, the dudes who run it asked us how we felt about playing 'The Black Album' in its entirety and we thought 'hold on, that could be really cool since it is technically the tail-end of the 20th anniversary of the release (August '91).' So come hang with us for the 2012 version of our European Summer Vacation featuring 'The Black Album,' with the exclusive stop in the UK on June 9."
2012 marks the third headlining slot for Metallica; they played in 2004 and, again, in 2006, when they performed the legendary "Master Of Puppets" album in its entirety. more on this story
