Metallica’s Bay Area buddies, MACHINE HEAD have been confirmed as special guests for next weekend’s Wembley Stadium show on 8th July.
Following their victorious Saturday set at the Download Festival and the release of their universally lauded ‘The Blackening’ album, MACHINE HEAD are more than ready to take on 70,000 loyal metalheads at the new national stadium.
To say MACHINE HEAD guitarist Phil Demmel is looking forward to it would be an understatement. “Holy Crap!!!” he enthuses. “A monstrous cherry just got plopped on top of our already huge European festival run pie, in the shape of the Metallica show at Wembley Stadium. Are you effin' kidding me?!? We couldn't have asked for a better ending to this amazing ride through Europe than to play with our Bay Area brothers at this legendary venue. WOO HOO!!”
And drummer Dave McClain could hardly be more excited! “Well, the year just keeps getting better and better!! After an amazing festival and some of the best headline shows we've ever had in the U.K. and Europe, we just got added to the bill for Metallica and Wembley Stadium!!! This will be the icing on the cake after a month of great memories like, headling the Metal Hammer awards and taking home “Album of the Year” honors, Robb winning the Golden God and being support for Iron Maiden at the Olympic Stadium in Rome!!!
Huge thanks to the Metallica guys for adding us to the show. We'll see all you Machine “F@*#ing” Head'ers at Wembley Stadium!!!”
MACHINE HEAD are set to take the stage at 5.15pm. A few remaining seated tickets are on sale now at http://www.livenation.co.uk/, priced
