This has to be the best news ever. Metallica is playing in New Delhi. The Times of India even published a small micro article about this. You know how big this is. Newspapers in India hardly write anything about metal bands and metal gigs but finding this on The Times of India, the most Bollywood infested newspapers in the country. The paper is filled with Bollywood people. This is huge. The news, Metallica Playing in India is big but Metallica in Times of India, this is something.
I have checked the Metallica official websites and the dates are not yet updated but according to many Indian music websites, Robert Trujillo the bassists of Metallica have confirmed that the will be playing in India. If this news is true, Metallica will be playing in the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida. The event is suppose to be something like this ‘F1 Rocks Delhi’. The name is a bit lame but.. hey.. I might get to see Metallica live. Seriously I still can’t believe because just last Saturday me and my friend sneaked inside the F1 track in Delhi and we were testing it in out Fiat Punto (unfortunately we had to stop after the security guys start shouting) and in that same place, the greatest metal band in the world will be playing.
According to the many rumors that are going around in the India Metal Scene, Metallica Playlist for Delhi will be mostly from the Pre – Black Album. There is not definite truth in this but I hope they will play more songs from Kill Em All, And Justice For All and Master of Puppets.
Nothing is 100% confirm now. Here are some facts that we have till now:
- Though Robert Trujillo have confirmed about Metallica Playing in India, the official websites doesn’t have any updates. So I am keeping my fingers crossed.
- According to some source the Metallica in India is suppose to happen somewhere in October. Metallica might play in Delhi as well as in Bangalore (I really want Metallica to play only in Delhi just to make the Bangalore Metal Heads travel all the way to Delhi for a change, cause all the metal bands choose only Bangalore and we had to travel there everytime).
- Till now we don’t have any clue which super lucky Indian Band (Kryptos will be a good choice) will be opening for Metallica not the place or the portal where we will get the Metallica Tickets.
- I sincerely hope that this is not a HOAX.
