Are you ready to jump in the fire? Bow to the leper messiah? Or even thrash around and act like a maniac? Well, your shortest straw has been pulled because Metallica are returning to Orlando after more than a decade.

Having concluded the first leg of their Worldwired Tour at Soldier Field in Chicago, Metallica is ready to hit the lights on the next leg of the tour right here in the City Beautiful. The band’s metal militia faithful can look forward to a king’s ransom of new (not nü) metal up their … ears from the thrashers’ latest album, Hardwired ... to Self-Destruct, which went platinum in April, along with older classics such as “One,” “Four Horsemen” andUnforgiven” making welcome appearances. After riding the lightning for 30-plus years, this tour marks the first time the four horsemen have offered “enhanced” or “VIP” experiences for fans.

Sad but truuuuu-uuuuuuue.
