Metallica have done many things in their career, some of which include working with a symphony orchestra, making an album with Lou Reed, and rising to fame as the world's most recognisable metal band. One thing they haven't done is play a gig in the United Arab Emirates.
That will change next month though, the band said in a statement:
“We're continuing to find firsts in 2011 as we are extremely excited to announce that we will be playing in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, next month on October 25 at Yas Island. After 30 years of travel to all corners of the earth, this one is extra special as the show kicks off a week of new territories for us.”
They will will be following up the gigs with two performances in India.
