been keeping away from this one for 2 reasons: being busy and not having much more to say that: yeah, Metallica is gonna play freaking Shanghai. It’s our loss Beijing but here’s hoping we can work something out the next few years. For now, the band has gone ahead and confirmed the rumor/gig on their own website so that’s one hell of a good start:
as if that wasn’t enough, we now know more or less, from AEG, when the tickets are going on sale online: Friday 10:00 a.m
If you’re one of those folks from Beijing planning to head down there for the gig on August 13th, i strongly suggest you get that mouse and keyboard ready if you want the cheaper tickets.
Maybe see you at the show… still debating whether this gig is worth the 2000 rmb for ticket + train to get there.
