METALLICA and Paul McCartney will headline this year’s Lollapalooza, set to take place July 31 – August 2 at Grant Park in Chicago, Illinois
METALLICA comments: “”It’s been nearly 20 years since we’ve been lucky enough to take the stage at Lollapalooza, so we are over the top that we’ve been asked to play this year at the now annual extravaganza held at Grant Park in Chicago. We’ll be hitting the stage on Saturday, August 1st. The three-day festival takes place this year July 31 – August 2, but only single-date tickets are still available. Pick yours up starting today at 10:00 a.m. CDT at Lollapalooza.com. See you this summer in the Windy City!”
METALLICA is currently working on material for its tenth studio album for a tentative late 2015/early 2016 release. The new CD will follow up 2008’s “Death Magnetic”.
METALLICA has spent a lot of time outside the studio in 2014, with activities that included a string of European all-request shows last summer, being guests of honor at a film festival, and playing a week-long residency on “The Late Show With Craig Ferguson”.
