TOUR UPDATES

With a full slate of European dates already set up, looks like Metallica will hit North American this summer as well.

Hidden Track reports that Metallica will hit Bader Field in Atlantic city during the last weekend in June. Other sources are confirming Metallica hitting Bader Field, but are less specific about date… (SOJO 104.9, Examiner, Atlantic City Weekly, amongst others…)

Also noteworthy, is that Phish is also slated to play a festival at Bader – probably the weekend before Metallica – and frontman Trey Anastasio has been quoted lately talking about covering Master of Puppets.
