Yes, yes…it has been rumored for some time now, Metallica’s participation in the new fest. And now, I am happy to report for you ‘Tallica fans north of the border that the California metal rockers will be playing Rock The Hill this summer.

To be staged on the Garrisons Grounds of Citadel Hill in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, on July 14, the festival’s site claims Metallica are go for launch.

The new Rock The Hill festival will also include Protest The Hero, Seether, and Coheed and Cambria. One out of three ain’t bad.

Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 12, at noon local time and will be available at or by phone at 1-877-569-7767. General-admission tickets are $99.50 and there are a limited number of VIP tickets for $199.50. That is fucking expensive, no?

Service charges and taxes will apply to all ticket orders. VIP ticket holders will have access to the front of stage pit, their own entrance and concessions, and the all-important special washrooms — because Spock knows you don’t want to shit with the rest of the metalheads.
