Big Day Out finds some odd bedfellows in the Bowl...

Metallica play their only UK gig this year on July 10 at Milton Keynes Bowl with support from Marilyn Manson and Placebo.

Billed as The Big Day Out, there will be two stages with seven bands on each; the others have yet to be announced.

Metallica are definitely not playing Glastonbury, though they were one of the bands approached, but as reported last week, they will be appearing at Woodstock in Austria and in Rome, New York.

Tickets for the Milton Keynes show are ‘28.50 and go on sale on February 20. For tickets to this and other shows try the NME Ticketline on 08700 1212 500 or click here to go to our online gig guide.
