Back to the Studio

Metallica was a roaring success in South Africa.   "Is this where all the wild animals are?" Metallica singer James Hetfield shouted at the 43,000 people jammed into Supersport Park on March 18.   The crowd's roaring response proved just how wild they were about being the first to ever witness Metallica perform in Africa.  Meanwhile fans from around the world gathered in front of their computers to be a part of this historic event as a local South African station broadcasted  Metallica's first two songs live over the air and across the Internet.  The excitement and enthusiasm for Metallica stayed strong and fierce as Metallica tore up the stages in Durban and Cape Town.

After a very successful escape to South Africa, Metallica is reported to be taking a few days off to rest, relax and shore up for studio work and the much hoped for new material!!  The next escape is in June when Metallica invades Europe for a summer full of music festivals including Download and the Rock Am Ring Festivals.  Fans around the world are wondering, and rumors are flying what Metallica will spring upon us during July before escaping to Japan and the newly added Korea date in August.
