The big news is that everyone’s been waiting for is that Metallica are due to play an exclusive, intimate gig for BBC Radio 1 at BBC Radio Theatre on Sunday, 14 September 2008 – the day before their appearance at London’s O2 Arena.

Radio 1 listeners can register for a chance to get tickets for the gig at from Tuesday, 02 September 2008 from 7.30pm. You have 72 hours (three days) to register.

The show will be broadcast the following day on Radio 1 from 9pm, forming the centrepiece of an entire evening devoted to Metallica, including a fantastic access all areas interview with all four members. This is quite annoying for those at the O2 Arena show, but I’m sure they’ll cope.

In other news, the war-inspired video for Metallica’s fortieth single, ‘The Day That Never Comes’ is to can now be found online. Clocking in at 7min 55secs, it’s less a promo video and more of a short film.
