Metallica working in new album
It took them a long time - 30 years, to be precise - but Metallica's live experience here in the UAE is just a few hours away. The band perform in the Arab world for the very first time Tuesday night at Yas Arena. And judging by the frenzy that has been generating since it was first announced that frontman James Hetfield, along with guitarist Kirk Hammett, drummer Lars Ulrich and bassist Robert Trujillo were to play in Abu Dhabi, this is going to be a night to remember.
From the fan pit selling out, and fans creating online campaigns to meet the band (just search for "Basel Anabtawi MUST Meet Metallica" on Facebook), to metalheads organising pre-show get-togethers, and others actually flying in from other countries - including Lebanon, Egypt, Kuwait and Bahrain - just to catch the show, this is no ordinary live event. So get ready for one of the best nights of your life.
