      Apparently Devil Driver doesn't wanna come. Fear Factory ftw!

    Fair enough. I'm not a fan so won't go but I'm damn chuffed to see Big Concerts is getting the bands in!!! Keep it up! If you're selling out stadiums, keep them coming! Would be awesome to have a festival again soon, cokefest or 46664. Imagine Dragons, Mumford and Sons etc could come then too.

  • ob.wan.14 - 2012-11-19 14:03

    If this is at the Stadiums... Please make sure the sound is good in the stadiums... so many people had terrible sound at Linkin Park, ColdPlay, Kings of Leon, etc. Otherwise I hope this is going to be in GrandWest Casino in Cape Town - this is an excellent venue!!

      Metallica has way too many fans to all fit into GrandWest's arena...

  • Thermophage - 2012-11-19 14:50

    Metallica has been here already so that would be the lamest big announcement ever

  • mark.klerk.7 - 2012-11-19 15:16

    Awesome news!!! The bible bashers are going to have a field day with this one as well. Lets see if they can maybe get 40 people to turn up to the next protest outside Big Concerts. haha

  • Metalyptica - 2012-11-19 15:25
