Metallica Not Performing 'Black Album' At Soundwave
With the recent announcement that Metallica would be bringing their classic "Snakepit" set-up to Australia's Soundwave festival this spring, the same set-up that the band had used on their "Black Album" tour, fans had began to speculate that they would be performing the record at the festival. However, a tweet from festival organizer AJ Maddah has revealed that this is not the case: "Not a rumour. They're not doing Black album," he tweeted, in response to a fan inquiry. Meanwhile Metallica's management have been defending the band's decision to start streaming their music on Spotify, a move that has seen their physical album sales drop: "There is a point at which there could be 100 percent cannibalization, and we would make more money through subscriptions services," Manager Cliff Burnstein told the New York Times. "We calculate that point at approximately 20 million worldwide subscribers."
