Metallica's infamous drummer Lars Ulrich will be the host of the Beats 1 radio show, "It's Electric!" The show is set to debut May 7 at 3PM PT. The premiere episode of the series will feature Iggy Pop!
"We go all over the world – we look at international bands for an international audience," he continues. "I'm gonna play you lots of really cool music by mostly bands you don't know; a lot of bands I've just been introduced to. We don't believe in boundaries, and we're open to everything. I have some guests call in on the phone, and they promise me I'm gonna have this show every week."-Lars Ulrich
Lars was able to recruit Iggy Pop as his first during the World Wired Tour taking place now. Iggy Pop opened up for Metallica in Mexico City. Lars told rolling stone "He joined us onstage for a sensational run through of the Stooges classic 'TV Eye,' and I asked him if he’d be the first guest on It's Electric!"
Metallica released their 10th studio album earlier this year named "Hardwired... To Self Destruct." The band will be kicking off the North American leg of the tour may 10th in Baltimore. Be sure to tune in to Lars Ulrich's show and get your tickets to catch him performing on tour!
