Metallica Confirms Wembley Support Acts

Metallica headline their first ever Wembley Stadium show on Sunday 8th July, as part of their 'Sick of the Studio 07' Summer Tour. And they're bringing these bands along with them...

Opening the show will be Atlanta quartet Mastodon, followed by Welsh MetalCore Rockers Bullet For My Valentine and taking the stage just before the main event are the Finnish royalty HIM.

Mastodon’s Bill Kelliher said "opening for one of my personal most influential bands at Wembley Stadium will be a monumental moment in time not just for us but for all…"

Bullet For My Valentine (BFMV) have fast become the darlings of the rock world, with an ever growing fanbase on both sides of the pond. The band are very excited about playing. "Supporting the legends Metallica at Wembley, we think it's awesome!! It's gonna be amazing" said BFMV’s Matthew Tuck.

HIM’s front man Ville Valo is rather happy about this too, telling Virtual Festivals: "We are extremely excited about playing with Metallica in such a special place and with such other great bands too, it’ll be a fantastic day".

There are still some seats available for the concert, priced £40 + booking fee here.
