Bangalore Welcomes Metallica!!!!

Time and again, rumours of a Metallica concert in India have sent metal heads into a tizzy. So when, earlier this year, the iconic American heavy metal band confirmed on its website that India and Bangalore were part of its latest tour itinerary, it was a dream come true for fans.

After heavy metal icons Iron Maiden and Megadeth performed here in recent years, the metal scene had been left parched, particularly so in the last two years. The performance by the third of the Big 4 of classic Metal [the fourth being Judas Priest, of course] on October 30 will certainly go down in Bangalore's rock history as an iconic day. Tickets for the performance in Bangalore are being booked online on various web-ticketing sites like & others.

Now is the right time to know some interesting facts about the Band, 
  • Metallica was formed in 1981 in Los Angeles, California in the United States.
  • The band was formed when Kirk Hammett responded to an advert that drummer Lars Ulrich had placed in his local newspaper.
  • To date Metallica has released 9 studio albums, 3 live albums, 5 extended plays, 24 music videos & 45 singles.
  • Metallica’s first studio album, Kill’em All, was released in 1983.
  • Metallica has won 9 Grammy Awards over the years.
  • Five consecutive Metallica albums have made their debut in the Billboard Top 200 chart.
  • Metallica (released in 1991 and commonly referred to as “the Black album”) is probably the most successful and popular album released by Metallica. To date the album has sold 15 million copies in the United States and 22 million copies worldwide.
  • The current members of the band are James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo.
  • Former members of the band include Ron McGovney , Dave Mustaine (who left the band and started Megadeth in 1983), Cliff Burton (who died when the Metallica’s tour bus over-turned in rural Southern Sweden) and Jason Newsted (who left Metallica in 2001).
 So here it is , we're finally going to hear the demigods live in ‘The Rock Capital of India’– Namma Bengaluru  \m/.
