Metallica to play Boston in January

We've been anticipating/dreading the leak of the new METALLICA single for weeks -- god, it can't be any worse than St. Anger, can it? -- and we can't say that we're heartened by the fact that the band is rolling out its American tour dates several weeks BEFORE the release of their new Death Magnetic. Metallica live is always sort of a no-brainer, but you can't help wonder whether they're gonna try to get fans to buy tix before the single comes out and spoils everyone's enthusiasm.

The good news? No on-sale dates have been posted yet, but the band will be at TD Banknorth Garden on January 18, 2009 -- a Saturday night -- with the Sword on the opening card. The bad news? The other opening band is Machine Head. Jesus.
