It seems a planned 3D film isn't enough for the incredibly busy members of Metallica. Bassist Robert Trujillo recently told USA Today that he's funding a biopic about the late bass legend Jaco Pastorius.
This month, Metallica are hosting their own festival, the Orion Music + More weekend, which takes place June 23 and 24 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. After that, they'll tour Mexico, where they'll unveil a new 140-by-50-foot stage featuring visual elements spanning their 30-year career.
Yesterday, Metallica kicked off their summer European tour at Synot Tip Arena in Prague, Czech Republic, a tour which will see them play their self-titled 1991 album — best known as The Black Album — in its entirety.
