Metallica Pay Their Tribute to Billie Joe

Metallica were invited to perform for Green Day at Voodoo Music Fest in New Orleans during their Saturday night set. They delivered their best numbers and also paid tribute to Billie Joe and Co.

They belted out the best scores with songs like, “Hit the Lights” and “Master of Puppets”. The frontman James Hetfield contributed another song “Battery” for Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong in the set. The crowd went wild as Metallica played.

Metallica made a grand entry into the show with the playing of opening chords of Green Day’s smashing hit song “American Idiot”. However, they cut it short and told the crowd that they cannot play the song. But later they showed their support for the band and said that they would sort it out since the world wants to hear them play.

Green Day was forced to pull out of the show at the Voodoo fest after their frontman Billie was caught for substance abuse and went into treatment late in September. Earlier reports said that Green Day would be missing only parts of their promotional appearances but after Billie went into rehab, the producer and the chairman of Warner Bros. shared with the world and told a different story. As told to the Rolling Stone the chairman Rob Cavallo said that Green Day will be forced to eliminate parts of their tour as Billie will be under treatment for an undefined duration.
