Metallica has never played a show in the country of India, and the promoter is making sure that every citizen gets a chance to see the giants of thrash metal by broadcasting the concert on MTV India

Whenever a band that has been around as long as Metallica has, it's hard to believe that haven't played every inch of the earth.  This is the case of Metallica and the country of India.  The heavy metal masters have never played the world biggest continent, but that is all changing this month.

Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo revealed that the band was going to be playing India in an interview with Inland Empire Weekly.

We are going to play India in October. That should be interesting, playing a place we never thought in our wildest dreams we'd play. It's an honor for all of us that we get to be a part of that whole music scene as a metal band sharing our music with fans in India at this incredible concert!

-Robert Trujillo

The concert is even going to be broadcast on MTV India a week after the event happens.  According to, MTV India reaches nearly 130 million people.  The concert itself is expected to boost the Indian economy as well.

Metallica plays India on October 28th.
