Metallica Lords of Summer

Metallica By Request is a twenty five date tour by American Heavy Metal band Metallica, it would start and end in 2014. Though, in the tour the band would allow ticket holders from each show to vote for what songs they wanted to hear played. Fans would vote for seventeen songs out of the eighteen to be played, the final song would be chosen by Metallica themselves.

Also much like the Sick of the Studio '07 tour Metallica would choose to play a new song from their upcoming album. The current working title of the song is called The Lords of Summer and can be viewed in either Live or Studio versions. It is unknown if like The New Song and The Other New Song if it will be changed into other songs before the release of the currently untitled new album. Metallica themselves also put up a poll site to show fans what the current poll standings are for songs to be played, and can be viewed here.

The tour would also feature the live debut of “The Frayed Ends of Sanity”, being played on May 28, 2014. The song being the last 80's era Metallica song to be played live in it's entirety.
