Metallica will be giving bands the opportunity to compete for the opening spot at five shows on the U.S leg of “The WorldWired” tour. The contest is being called ‘Hit the Stage’. Since only a few shows only feature one opener Metallica decided to show their support for the local music scene. Fans can vote for the bands by visting these radio stations. KEGL(Dallas, Texas), WLUP (Chicago, Ill.), KISS (San Antonio, Texas) and KPNT(St. Louis, Mo.).
Remember to tune in and listen to the winners being announced on April 14th. If you have not bought your tickets remember to get them before they are sold out! The "WorldWired" tour is something you do not want to miss!
