Metallica to hit the lights
Thousands of metal heads endured long hours of queuing to secure a chance to mosh to the sound of James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Robert Trujillo and legendary guitarist Kirk Hammett.
Referred to by many as the "Gods of Heavy Metal", Metallica has been making music since 1981 when the band was born.
Their distinctive mix of thrash metal and melodic ballads, have given them global appeal and fans in South Africa are just as fervent as those found elsewhere in the world.
Metallica are scheduled to perform at Soccer City Complex, FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on April 27, 2013.
