Got this press release from Clear Channel, who are the promoters of the Download Festival...
We are huge Metallica fans at Download and would be honoured to have them performing at our festival. However, they are not confirmed to play at Download. We gather a rumour was started when we added Apocalyptica to the bill earlier this week.
So... was it meant to be a secret little show, and now it's been blown by the press? They are still doing a cheeky little show at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith, for Channel Four... capacity TWO HUNDRED, what is that going to be like?
