Metallica’s India Concert 2011: Indian fans rejoice!

Metallica: (L-R) Kirk Hammet (Guitars), James Hetfield (Voice, Guitars), Lars Ulrich (Drums, Percussions) and Robert Trujillo (Bass guitars)
Dimapur | April 26 : Metallica will play in India around October 28-30, 2011. Now you can retract yours jaws to their original position, thank you. Who would have imagined that the biggest thrash metal band in the history of noise would decide a concert for India? Metallica’s low-ender Robert Trujillo revealed this to Inland Empire Weekly’s April edition (oh, this is the biggest new since Bon Jovi’s turning around and seeing something called India behind). Read the entire interview here.
This is what the Metallica Bassist told the weekly: "We are going to play India in October. That should be interesting; playing a place we never thought in our wildest dreams we'd [go] to play. It's an honor for all of us that we get to be a part of that whole music scene as a metal band sharing our music with fans in India at this incredible concert!"
The news appears consistent with rumors since November 2010 that Metallica would be playing in India as part of F1 Rocks, the music segment of the inaugural Formula 1 Indian Grand Prix scheduled for October 28-30, 2011 in Noida, UP, India.
Boy oh boy. This band elbowed me major time into playing the guitar and metal (as it did to billions of Nagas. 16 lakhs to be precise). The first ever Metallica song I listened to was ‘Nothing Else Matters’ when school was the universe. After it, no metal band that ever leapt and banged out its hair though the speakers impressed me enough. Let’s just, only, simply say that by the time I was in college, I could play every single slab of Metallica, every song, every single guitar passage from any of their nine albums – mom could not afford me a drum set. (By the way, do you know, Metallica has about 28 albums, actually. EPs, cover albums, live albums etc) Can you believe it? Metallica’s India Concert 2011 would be injecting greater interest in proper Metal music in India. Just watch and see.
Oh, you are still here. What are you doing here still? Go grab your metal seat, you incompetent dingbat!
