Kirk Hammett: 'I Thought We Already Played Glastonbury!'
In a new interview with NME, Kirk Hammett has revealed that he was surprised about the media circus surrounding Metallica's headlining slot at Glastonbury because he was under the impression that the band had already played the festival:

"It's entertaining to watch the media circus fret over our little band," he says. "I've just been kicking back and enjoying it, because frankly, between you, me and all the readers of NME - I thought we already played Glastonbury!"

Hammett revealed that he had confused the festival with a show that Metallica had played with System Of A Down in Ireland in 2004:

"I thought we did it with System Of A Down back in 2004 or something. I mistook it for a gig we played in Ireland. But when the initial offer came, I said to our management, 'Glastonbury, we've played it before!'"

Metallica will headline the festival on June 28th.
