Ross Halfin leaked the info on the upcoming filming of a Metallica live Death Magnetic concert DVD by writing "then back to Mexico to shoot Metallica who are playing three nights in the football stadium, which is now going to be filmed so I have to shoot a dvd cover" on his blog.
Now Metallica has confirmed that Mexico shows on June 4, 6, and 7 and French Nimes show on July 7 will be filmed for a DVD release from the Death Magnetic World Magnetic world tour.
There's been a little chatter here and there about us filming a few shows this summer for potential release on DVD and among the countless internet rumors, these ones are actually true! We thought it would be cool to document a few shows that are unique and sure to be extra memorable for us, and hopefully for you too . . . first up are the three sold out shows in Mexico City, Mexico at Foro Sol on June 4, 6, 7 and later this summer, we also plan to have the cameras rolling at the sold out show in Nimes, France at Arenes de Nimes, the historic Roman amphitheater where we'll be on July 7.
For any Metallica friends going to these shows, bring your war faces and don't be scared of the cameras!!
The DVD is scheduled to be released in October 2009.
