Metallica was formed in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield and in the nearly 37 years since, they’ve pretty much done it all. If you need to know more, loads of facts can be found on Wikipedia…and some of them are even true. The band recently wound up the European leg of their WorldWired tour and will be taking their in-the-round production to the US kicking off on September 2, 2018, in Madison, WI.
