Metallica's Lars Ulrich said: "I am beyond psyched that the first 'big four' show in Western Europe will take place on the hallowed grounds of Knebworth, where so many unique and special gigs have happened over the years - there is simply no better venue for a European round two of the big four!!

Hetfield says during the current interview with Pulse Of Radio, the band has cut their cover of Anti-Nowhere League's "So What"to inhibit vulgarity on stage, he explains, "Since I've had kids the show's become more family-friendly as far as the language goes. We haven't played 'So What' in a while — there are too many words that just ain't right. My son's heard them all, but I don't need to promote them".
According to Hetfield they make Metallica a family matter they can, even bringing his children out on the path, he said, "There's this thing called school, which sucks. But we yanked them on the last leg of the tour when we did Japan because they'd never been there. My voice does get a little loud at home sometimes. But I'm learning it doesn't necessarily get anything done."
