Metallica Have Ambition To Play In Space

The metal veterans once broke a world record playing seven continents across the planet

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has admitted that the band have ambitions to play in space.

In 2013, the metal veterans set a world record by playing all seven continents in a year. But now they’ve admitted they want to break another record.

“Living in San Francisco which is the gateway to the future, obviously all those things are being planned around San Francisco to a degree so I feel that we are close to that [playing in space] as we can be,” Ulrich said recently.

“There’s a few feelers out to a few people – nothing worth giving away yet.”

He added: “I don’t really want to commit to anything other than to say that if there really is a possibility for this to happen, then we will happily be at the very front of that line.

“I think we’ve shown over the last few decades that that sense of spirit, that sense of adventure still burns in us and that we would love to, and would bend over backwards to, make anything out of the ordinary happen, so watch this space.”
