Michael wrote on Facebook: “I love Lynyrd Skynyrd and the song this past year at the White River Amphitheater in Auburn Washington but they claimed it was their farewell tour and even saying so at the venue and now all the sudden they’re back on tour again next year it pisses me off because it was almost like it was a ruse to sell tickets that’s a ***** way to kind of treat your fans in my opinion unless for some other unforeseen reason what I think to be true is not then that’s all right I just think it’s a ****bag move if it was.”
Whereas Heather said: “What about James? He’s pretty important! How can Metallica say there doing more shows when they don’t know if James will be back for sure? I d buy tickets and come to America just to see James and Metallica if I knew for sure that James was back and out of rehab! Don’t want to go all that way from Australia and have it canceled very disappointing.” Jason Newsted recently reunited with Metallica in an emotional photo.
