Kryptic Throne, Paralysys, and More to Play a Metallica Tribute Show at Tobacco Road
We all breathed really heavy sighs when weheard that Metallica was going to release a DVD along with Anthrax, Megadeth, and Slayer
, but realized they won't be joining them for their October 3 South Florida show. After all, what's real metal fan doesn't have a little Metallica stashed away in their collections?
Well, the real Metallica hasn't made any Florida tour announcements, but we may have come across the next best thing: A Metallica Tribute Show. Their former bassist Cliff Burton passed away on September 27, 1986, and to honor him, 10 bands will take to two stages to perform covers of Metallica's best songs, along with their own originals. You can also catch some rare live Metallica videos and remixes between sets.
Tobacco Road will be hosting the shindig next Saturday, with
