Metallica, Rolling Stones to Deliver One-Two Punch

In a message sent to fan members, metal Gods Metallica have announced today they will be opening for the Rolling Stones in San Francisco November 13 and November 15. The shows, to be held at San Francisco's SBC Park, will be sure to provide an enormous wealth of entertainment for the seasoned rock music fan. Metallica themselves are quite excited:

"After having the thrill of playing with some of our personal heroes such as AC/DC, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden and Ozzy (Osbourne), how could we say 'no' to the quintessential rock band, who are in some way responsible for all of this?" the band said in the email.

"These two shows are about nothing other than having fun and playing music ... nothing to sell, nothing to promote, nothing to talk about ... Simply put, this is the reason we started a band 25 or so years ago, and we are psyched and appreciative of this awesome opportunity to get cracking again..."

For those of you fortunate enough to attend one of these sure-to-be great shows, be sure to thank your lucky stars.
