Jason Newsted To Perform With Metallica


Main Metallica axe-man Kirk Hammett has confirmed that ex-bassist Jason Newsted will perform with the band at the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony.

Newsted was already confirmed as attending the ceremony by the band, which caused forums around the world to explode with rumours about a potential hook-up. Fans have been answered, as Kirk tells The Pulse Of Radio: “Jason Newsted will be there, and he will be playing with us at one point”.

Hammett also explained why the decision was made, saying: “We don’t want any [drama], because it puts a really bad, sour note on the whole celebration itself”.

The thrash-legends are set to be inducted into the much-acclaimed Rock and Roll Hall OF Fame on 4th April, by Red Hot Chilli Peppers‘ bassist Flea.

All eyes will be on the ex-bassist’s first on-stage return to the band since leaving in 2001. Will they all be happy families again? Where will Rob even stand?
