Metallica are one of the first acts announced to appear at next year’s Reading and Leeds.
Fresh from a week-long residency on US late night television, the mighty metallers are leading the charge in the first round of acts confirmed to appear at the festival next year. They’ll be be headlining for a staggering fourth time, after first closing proceedings at the festival eighteen years ago.
Speaking of their invitation to play, the band’s drummer Lars Ulrich has said: “We are obviously beyond thrilled to be returning to headline the magnificent and mighty double shot at Reading & Leeds for the fourth time. We are practically the house band. Bring it!”
