Metallica has released footage from their first ever show in India, including some from a back stage ‘meet and greet’ and a tuning room jam. Hennemusic reports the show in Bangalore was supposed to be Metallica’s second show in India, but became the first after a show in Gurgaon was canceled due to permit issues. The last-minute cancellation was “mired in a riot by upset fans, and the arrest of four of the event’s organizers.”
Metallica was just announced as the headliners for the Download Festival in England next June. It’s the third time Metallica has headlined the festival near Manchester. The past two times the band has played entire albums from their past catalog.
