Metallica

Metallica have announced that they will be making “two short treks” across Europe next Summer and have revealed that they will be inviting fans to choose the setlist they play.

“As we embark on two short treks through Europe this summer, we’re going to give you, the ticket holders, the chances to vote on what songs you would like to hear at the shows that you attend,” comment the band. “We normally play around 18 songs a night, and since we didn’t want to be left out of the fun, the band also gets to vote… and we vote for a NEW SONG! That leaves the other 17 slots for you to choose.

“Here are a few dates to get you started: June 4, 2014 – Sonisphere Hamburg, June 6, 2014 – Rock Im Park, and June 8, 2014 – Rock Am Ring.”

In addition to the fan-picked setlist, Metallica will also play some new material.
