Metal icons Metallica
have presented a full itinerary of their 2014 "Metallica by Request
" European tour, unveiling 15 concert stops on the old continent.
As reported, the band will give fans almost full control over each show's setlist, allowing ticket holders to pick the tunes they want to hear through online voting. In conclusion, 17 songs of each setlist will be chosen by fans, while the 18th track is reserved for yet another exclusive - a brand new song.
"It will be pretty simple ... pick up your ticket(s) online and you'll receive an e-mail shortly after with a code and a link to a site on which you may cast your ballot,"
the band explained. "We normally play around 18 songs a night, and since we didn't want to be left out of the fun, the band also gets to vote ... and we vote for a new song!"
In related Metallica news, the four-piece has cancelled the 2014 edition of their Orion Music
festival, making the event's future unknown until further notice. The band had previously hinted at a possibility of making Detroit Orion's permanent home.
