  • Peter Kushing

    Between those weak ass opening bands and that shit Wednesday date in Detroit, I gotta pass.

    • Saturn

      Gojira are definitely not a weak ass opening band – they are one of the best metal bands on the planet at the moment.
      I personally am not a fan of Avenged Sevenfold though, and can’t comment on Volbeat as I don’t know their material, so they may be weak ass.
      I’ll be happy if Metallica come to the UK with Gojira in tow when they reach our neck of the woods.

      • Peter Kushing

        Gojira are only on the last 6 dates.

        • Saturn

          Well that sucks – unless you’re going to one of those last dates, then that’s fantastic!

  • Golic

    Metallica will never be cool again.

    • The Fucked Up

      Neither will clinging to the past

      • mdonnelly
