Metallica to welcome India's first Grand Prix !!


NEW DELHI — US heavy metal outfit Metallica will rock India with their first-ever show in the country at a concert to mark the inaugural Formula One meeting in October.


"There are very few places in the world that we have not dragged our gear and crew to," the nine-time Grammy Award winners said on their website on Monday. "For the first time ever, we will be visiting India for two shows."

India are slated to host the Grand Prix on October 30 at a new $350 million circuit in Greater Noida on the outskirts of New Delhi.


The veteran rockers, famous for numbers like "Nothing Else Matters", will perform at the "F1 Rocks" gig in the satellite town of Gurgaon on October 28 and another show in Bangalore on Oct 30.


Some of New Delhi's recent attempts to stage shows by top international acts have failed due to last-minute cancellations blamed on security or money issues.

Canadian rock star Bryan Adams called off a concert earlier this year after police refused to give clearance.


Pop diva Lady Gaga scrapped plans to play in India this month reportedly because she was unhappy with the money on offer, but she has said she will make the trip to perform in October.


"This event will definitely be the biggest live event to have hit India ever! The crowd is just going to go wild; since metalheads in India rarely get to see bands as big as Metallica perform live and in the flesh," says Sheena Philip, a Chennai-based PR executive who is a huge fan of Metallica's metal ballad Nothing Else Matters. Club that with the adrenalin rush of the upcoming F1 races, October will be one high-energy month!

  • Though we have sworn by their songs during our college days, its a little late in their career that they decided to come to India.. isn't it. Money makes the world go round :)
    F1 tickets are not yet up for sale -- only for the India GP, on Formula1.com.
    I guess they are themselves not sure whether it will happen.
