Rumours circulate online, but organisers say 'No'...
METALLICA are rumoured to be playing at the DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL this weekend (May 31-June 1)
The band are said to be appearing on the second day of the two-day festival at Donington Park on the Scuzz stage.
Rumours are circulating that Metallica, who last played in the UK in 1999, will appear during the ‘late afternoon.’
However, organisers are playing down the reports. A statement issued today reads: “We are huge Metallica fans at Download and would be honoured to have them performing at our festival. However, they are not playing at Download. We gather a rumour was started when we added Apocalyptica to the bill earlier
Metallica‘s new album ‘St Anger’ is released on June 9.
