Metallica will revive their classic Snake Pit stage design from the original Black Album tour when they trek across Europe this year.
It follows their announcement in March that they will unveil a 140x50 foot stage design that will feature visual elements spanning their 30-year career.
Now their official newsletter has revealed that the Snake Pit - an area next to the band which holds between 150 to 200 fans - will be the centrepiece to their forthcoming stage show:
"As you may have heard, the theme of our summer trek through Europe is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the release of the Black Album by playing it in its entirety at all 16 shows," reads the newsletter.
"And what would a tour of the Black Album be without a snake pit???? For those of you who were with us almost 20 years ago for the summer of '92-'93 tours, you might recall that diamond shaped pit extending from the middle of the stage, well it's baccccckkkk for our little summer vacation!"
You'll need to be part of the official Metallica fan club for a chance to win passes to the Snake Pit.
Judging by Lars Ulrich's initial statement on their new stage design, which mentioned a "new, sick as f--k, over the top, out of control stage that will be the cornerstone of our touring escapades for the next years to come," there's a chance that other surprise elements will be included once it is officially revealed.
