U2 Break Silence With Bold Message To Metallica


U2 have been pretty quiet since their most recent tour ended, as Bono was suffering vocal issues around the same time. The band have now sent a message and gift to Metallica as they tour in Europe.

Lars Ulrich posted, “We are in picnic heaven thanx to our friends in @U2! An honor to be in your hometown! #wanna #MetAtSlaneCastle.”

In an interview with MTV News in 2013, Ulrich said he wanted to tour with U2, “U2 came to San Francisco two summers ago and we ended up having a lot to drink with them and Green Day following a dinner. I was told in the wee morning hours following this outing that members of U2, Green Day and Metallica agreed to tour together. We haven’t talked about it since, but speaking for myself I’d be very up for that.”

“We’ve been fortunate enough to play every other festival on this planet numerous times, so Glastonbury is the only one that’s eluding us,” Ulrich said. “There’s such a vibe and it’s maybe the most quintessentially English festival.”

Metallica are set to wrap up their Hardwired…To Self-Destruct tour after 3 years later this year, with the band planning to return to the studio in 2020 to record the followup.
