Metallica Interested in Touring With U2 and Green Day
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich expressed his great desire to tour with U2 and Green Day, confirming that talks are likely to get under way soon. During a recent MTV News chat, Ulrich explained: "U2 came to San Francisco two summers ago and we ended up having a lot to drink with them and Green Day following a dinner." The drummer then dropped a major announcement, saying, "I was told in the wee morning hours following this outing that members of U2, Green Day and Metallica agreed to tour together. We haven't talked about it since, but speaking for myself I'd be very up for that." Lars didn't specify whether the tour was in fact the big announcement he discussed earlier this month. He did however point out that headlining next year's Glastonbury would be a fun, yet unlikely endeavor. "Every year there's probably less chance of us doing it than the previous year, but it just looks like it would be a fun night out," he said. "We've been fortunate enough to play every other festival on this planet numerous times, so Glastonbury is the only one that's eluding us. There's such a vibe and it's maybe the most quintessential English festival." Back in 2010, Lars called himself a "U2 groupie," giving Bono and co. nothing but kudos. "I'm the hugest U2 fan - I would borderline call myself a groupie, actually," he told Faster Louder magazine. "Playing with U2 ... I would f--king play on the parking lot. They're one of the only other bands that are still functioning after 30 years, just like we are, and I feel a lot of kinship in what they do and I just really admire and appreciate.

"They're really inspiring to me. I love their music, I love their way of reinventing themselves, and I love their way or thinking big and small. And it sort of works on all levels."
