Metallica: “China Was A Challenge!”
Metallica have spoken exclusively to Metal Hammer about their recent show in Shanghai, China and how their quest to conquer the entire world shows no signs of abating.
“It’s such a great opportunity and it’s also a great challenge, because a lot of these places probably wouldn’t have been able to handle a show like this in the past,” bassist Rob Trujillo tells us. “The last time Metallica tried to play in Indonesia there was a riot and there were a lot of problems. It’s the infrastructure in these places that needs to be much more solid. But we didn’t have those problems in Asia this time around so it’s getting better and better. The fans really embraced the moment. There was a lot of magic in there and we felt that, big time. We feed off that, so I’m happy to say that we’ll be getting over to Asia a lot more than once every ten years now. The doors are opening and the fans are there.”
