Metallica Extend Tour & Launch Download Music Site

Published: 2004-03-18
"We've always been a live band, and we have to get out there and play, play, play," Metallica frontman James Hetfield said. With that philosophy in mind the Grammy winning band has extended their tour of North America with dates into the early part of October. Recently Metallica announced that they will be offering unedited soundboard recordings of their concerts for sale over the internet. A few days after each concert MP3 and FLAC files of the show will be available for downloading for $9.95 and $12.95. Band members promise different set lists for the shows. A die hard Metallica fan would find it hard to memorize and follow a show. In the past members of Metallica, most notably drummer Lars Ulrich, have been outspoken against pirating and file sharing; but for Metallica selling their shows over the internet is just the next logical step.
