James Hetfield: What’s next after Metallica 2020 tour

James Hetfield just returns to public life last week after his rehabilitation. The first thing he can do after rehab also attended the opening reception of his ‘Reclaimed Rust: The James Hetfield Collection‘ exhibition.

Hetfield joined the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, CA 10 of his cars. In this event, Hetfield goes to the stage for an interview in front of an audience. Fans are asking the question about what’s gonna happen Metallica after 2020 tour? James Hetfield answered the band plans and they also want for a brand-new album which will be the follow-up to November 18th, 2016’s Hardwired… To Self-Destruct.

James Hetfield answered this question:

“That’s a great question. We do not know. Right now, I’m sitting in the Petersen Museum, and I don’t know what’s going to happen next! That’s the beauty of this. We’ll sit down and figure out what works best for us. Whatever is coming up, we don’t know. And we kind of thrive off of the fear of the unknown a bit, and being scared just enough to feel alive.”

During the interview he answered a few questions:

In the ’80s, in L.A., guitar players, everyone was trying to be Eddie Van Halen, and there were millions of guitar players. Every band was looking for a singer … so I sold my guitar, sold my amp and bought a P.A. and a mic, and I wanted to be a singer. And then when I met Lars [Ulrich] again, I told him, ‘Oh, I’m not playing guitar anymore. I’m just singing.’ He was, like, ‘Well, we’ll look for a guitar player.’ And then no one could play the guitar as we needed, so I [went back to playing] the guitar. ‘We’ll just look for a singer now.’ And then no one could sing like [we wanted them to], so I [said], ‘Okay, I’ll sing until we find a singer.’

Now, he joins the band for an upcoming tour. Also, Metallica already announces will headline five major North American festivals this year. The festival events are Epicenter, Welcome To Rockville, Sonic Temple Music + Arts, Louder Than Life and Aftershock. In addition, Metallica will play two separate concerts setlist at each concert within 10 different shows. Watch out the full James Hetfield interview below.
