Metallica has added a few dates to their upcoming European trek, Metallica by Request, where fans will get to choose the band’s setlist for each show.
In addition to performing at Sonisphere, Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park events in Germany in June, the group will now makes appearances at Landgraaf Pink Pop in the Netherlands on June 9, Rock Werchter in Belgium on July 3 and Sonisphere in Knebworth, England on July 6.
Everyone who buys tickets to upcoming gigs will have the opportunity to vote on the group’s setlists. The band will also include a surprise for fans who attend those gigs: a brand-new song.
“We normally play around 18 songs a night, and since we didn't want to be left out of the fun, the band also gets to vote…and we vote for a NEW SONG,” writes the band in a joint statement on their website . “That leaves the other 17 slots for you to choose, so vote for all your favorites from the close to 140 songs we've recorded in our career and to make it more fun along the way, you'll be able to follow what you and your fellow fans are selecting by watching the site for continuous results.”
