For the first time in the band's history, Metallica will visit India for two performances this fall.

A post on the band's web site explains: "there are very few places in the world that we have not dragged our gear and crew to, so that makes this show announcement extra special... for the first time ever, we will be visiting India for two shows! It's about time, wouldn't you say?!?!"

"Up first will be Delhi on October 28, 2011 at F1 Rocks, held in Leisure Valley, Sector 29, Gurgaon as we help to celebrate the first Grand Prix race ever held in India. Night number two will find us at the Bangalore Palace Ground, Main Palace, Bangalore, on October 30 as part of the Sonisphere Festival."

"All tickets are general admission and will go sale on www.ticketgenie.in and www.dnanetworks.com on May 4 at a time still to be announced."

In an April 23rd interview with Inland Empire Weekly magazine, Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo revealed his excitement for the trip: "We are going to play India in October... That should be interesting, playing a place we never thought in our wildest dreams we'd [go] to play. It's an honor for all of us that we get to be a part of that whole music scene as a metal band sharing our music with fans in India at this incredible concert!"

Metallica has several shows lined up on the European festival circuit this summer, as well as another US Big Four show at Yankee Stadium in New York. The band's Indian tour update included what appears to be a teaser for another world tour announcement, telling readers: "for those of you who like to travel, you might want to keep watching this site".

I feel bad for them when they do the 'Meet and Greet' - i wouldn't want to shake the left hand lol Irrespective of your ages, you guys have seen absolutely nothing. You live in a tiny cocoon, which you call your world, with presumptions about the rest. Your disregard for other people without knowing them, or about them only makes you fools. That's why the rest and not you, face longevity and not extinction.
    Dude.... it's a joke, get over it.

That's why the rest and not you, face longevity and not extinction. I don't know where to beign to tell you how naive your comment is. I've lived in India more than half my life, and visited India countless times. Regardless of Russle Peters or your personal agenda to feel/seem self righteous, open minded and educated, what you said is more ignorant than anything the other two posters said. I've lived with them my whole life,and they do smell, horrible; I used to as well until it was pointed out to me. It's not about their lifestyle or poverty, it's due to the lack of hygiene, which they choose to ignore most of the times. So before you go on your crusade to cure the world with your righteousness, take a look in the mirror and think thoroughly about how ignorent and close minded you really are. They are generalizing it, and so are you, I dont think thats right. I dont know which part you lived in or you visit. I am not denying anything. I cant understand why you took it so personally. Anyways, having stayed in India "half your life" you never met people who are hygienic? Man, you need to visit India again, cuz you really have seen nothing. Where, from all that did you get "you never met people who are hygienic?" please enlighten me.
    You did say Indians smell horrible dint ya? and that its cuz they do not maintain hygiene? You are generalizing it.
