Metallica Announce Festival Appearance

Metallica have announced that they will be making their return to the Roskilde Festival, which appears to be the band's only European show this summer.

the Roskilde Festival will be taking place from June 29th until July 7th in Roskilde, Denmark with Metallica headlining during the July 4-7 weekend.

The band had this to say about their return to the famed festival, "It's been ten long years since we've been to this classic festival and we can't wait to return."

Organizers issued this statement, "The giants will take a short break from the studio recording their 12th album to visit Roskilde for the first time in ten years. It was not in the cards that the undisputed kings of metal were going to Europe at all this summer. But late in the game, we managed to secure a single show with the band that visited Roskilde ten years ago, teaching us a lesson in thrash metal that made traffic around the festival come to a standstill."

The festival's Director of Music & Creation, Rikke xner adds: "We listen to our audience, and this year they have been shouting for a large name to complete our high-quality, forward-thinking, broad music programme. Very few names of this kind are on tour, so we have had to think outside the box and are obviously thrilled to welcome back Lars Ulrich and his crew much earlier than expected."
