Given that they are both former members of Metallica, one would think Dave Mustaine and Jason Newsted would get along famously. However, that appears not to be the case, as we learn that Newsted's self-titled band has been thrown off an Australian tour by headliners Megadeth.
Nearly two months after saying they were taking a year off from their Orion Music + More Festival, Metallica appear to have decided to make it permanent. In a new interview, James Hetfield says that the band has called time on the whole shebang, referring to it as a "financial disaster."
Metallica made it back to the Grammys on Sunday (Jan. 26) to perform a familiar favorite, but with a twist. The group rocked their previous Grammy-winning single 'One' with the aid of classical pianist Lang Lang.
Earlier this month, Metallica announced that they would be performing with Chinese classical pianist Lang Lang at this year's Grammy telecast on Jan. 26. They just announced which song they'll be playing together.
Metallica's live album 'S&M,' which stands for Symphony and Metallica, saw the band backed by the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra to make their music somehow sound larger than it already is. What's more epic than Metallica backed by an orchestra? A toddler dancing to it, of course!
Chances are you didn't get to see Metallica's Antarctica performance in person, but no worries, the band has you covered. Metallica's entire 'Freeze 'Em All' concert is now available for download straight from Metallica themselves. In addition, the band has posted an official recap of the historic concert (watch above).
At this point in their career, Metallica have no one left to impress, and no one's expectations to meet but their own. But, to their credit, they don't rest on the laurels, and 30 years on, they continue to push the boundaries
