Metallica is still doing press for its 3D movie, Through The Never, which is basically a bomb at this point. He is in the UK promoting the movie, and spoke with MTV over there and brought up the idea of a potential mega tour with Green Day and U2, which they briefly discussed over dinner.
"U2 came to San Francisco two summers ago and we ended up having a lot to drink with them and Green Day following a dinner. I was told in the wee morning hours following this outing that members of U2, Green Day and Metallica agreed to tour together. We haven't talked about it since, but speaking for myself I'd be very up for that."
So they all got drunk and shot the shit and joked about touring together. Metallica are friends with Green Day, filling in for them last year when Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong had to go into rehab, but would anybody be excited at the prospect of this tour?
All three bands are headliners in their own right, so what would the order be? And ticket prices? I'm guessing just the service fees alone will be enough to cover a year's worth of underground metal shows.
