The love story between Metallica and Quebec continues. The legendary group will return to the plains of Abraham as part of the 50th edition of the Québec City Summer Festival on July 14.
The band of fans of Quebec music, Metallica, is back at the Québec City for the Summer Festival on July 14th on the Plains of Abraham stage.
What everyone knew is now official: Metallica will be one of the headliners of the 50th edition of the Quebec City Summer Festival . After several rumors and months of waiting to see if they were founded, it will be on Friday, July 14 that the band headed by James Hetfield will perform for the second time on the mythical scene of the Plains of Abraham, after a historical show in July 2011, which had attracted the biggest crowd in the history of the festival, equaled only by the arrival of the Rolling Stones in 2015.
Since that concert, they have been singing the last notes of the late Colisée Pepsi and the first at the brand new Center Vidéotron in September 2015. It was the band’s drummer Lars Ulrich himself who launched the idea of marking the transition between the two Buildings with 2 concerts of the beloved band in a city that they particularly like. After the opening show that was scheduled for September 11 and featuring big names of the song in Quebec had been canceled, it’s Metallica whom officially opened the Videotron Centre on September 16, 2015, 2 days after closing the old Coliseum.
Founded in 1981 by James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, both still members to date, Metallica has sold some 100 million albums worldwide. Their most popular album, the eponymous album, renamed “Album Noir” due to its cover, contains the most popular tracks like Enter sandman, The unforgiven and Nothing else matters. Their most recent album is Hardwire … to self-destruct, released in 2016. Metallica is renowned among others for his fast, nervous instrumental music, which places him as one of the four biggest thrash metal bands, with Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax.
