SUMMER SANITARIUM TOUR 2003 + ALBUM RELEASE DATE

  • METALLICA, LIMP BIZKIT and LINKIN PARK COMMITTED to the SANITARIUM
    Rock fans rejoice! Three of the music world's greatest, most vital bands are joining forces for one of the most compelling tours in rock history, the Summer Sanitarium Tour 2003. Metallica, Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park come together for this once-in-a-lifetime live extravaganza that will kick off this coming summer, with all 3 bands playing headline length sets. The 3 groups are also delivering new albums to coincide with this unprecedented juggernaut throughout the U.S. The Summer Sanitarium Tour is slated to officially begin on July 4th. Metallica's inaugural Summer Sanitarium tour - which trekked across the U.S. in a series of sold out shows in the summer of 2000 - was one of the most successful concert events of that year, and featured some of the biggest names in rock, including Metallica, Korn, Kid Rock and System Of A Down.


    For Metallica, who will be delivering their first studio album in more than five years this summer, the tour will mark their first appearance on American stages since 2000's Summer Sanitarium run. With more than 85 million albums sold worldwide, and holding down gold or platinum certifications in more than 40 countries, Metallica enters their third decade at the top of their game, largely regarded as one of the most influential groups in music history. Since their inception in 1981 the group has broken countless records, garnered numerous awards including 6 Grammys and engaged in several history-charting performances, including a groundbreaking appearance with the San Francisco Symphony in 1999. Their much anticipated new disc - their 8th studio album - entitled St. Anger, will be in stores on June 10th and is their first studio release since 1997's Re-Load, which debuted at #1 in 12 countries around the world and has sold more than 12 million albums worldwide to date.


    Limp Bizkit, led by multi-talented frontman Fred Durst burst on to the rock scene in 1997 with their masterpiece, Three Dollar Bill, Y'all$, and are credited with single-handedly re-invigorating the rock genre by changing the face of alternative and rock radio. Having sold 28 million albums worldwide with just 3 studio releases, their last studio album Chocolate Starfish and The Hot Dog Flavored Water, sold 13 million copies worldwide and is certified platinum in 33 countries. It is the only rock record in the history of Sound Scan to sell over 1 million copies in its first week of sales. The band's long awaited follow up, Lessismore is tentatively set to be released May of 2003.


    Linkin Park became the biggest selling band of 2001 with more than 8 million albums sold for their acclaimed album Hybrid Theory. Hailed by critics and fans alike as one of rock's most important new forces, the band refuses to be pigeonholed as 'just' a rock band, describing their sound as a 'cross-section of many genres', including alternative rock, hip hop and electronic. For the past eighteen months Linkin Park has been hard at work on Meteora, their new album on Warner Bros. Records due March 25th, 2003. Produced by Don Gilmore and Linkin Park, Meteora features Linkin Park's new single 'Somewhere I Belong,' which will be released to radio in late February.


    In addition, Summer Sanitarium Tour 2003 is proud to announce Mudvayne to the line-up. The Peoria, Illinois, quartet are supporting their second album, The End of All Things To Come following the gold success of their debut L.D. 50.

  • und wenn das ding "The mighty boozed pimps" heißt. Solange die Musik stimmt passt das.
    wer organisiert diese Snatarium Tour eigentlich?

  • ja, klar, ganz eindeutig wieder "GroßkotzigA"... :skeptisch: jketzt stehts also fest...naja, geile tour :rofl:


    Metallica, Whip Shitkit, Schinkenquark & Mudavayne + eine weitere Band


    und toll auch, dass das album erst nach Rock am ring kommt....naja we´ll see :]

  • vieleicht gibts die ja schon bei RaR am Merch Stand zu kaufen :D
    naja, die SSTour war ja schon 2000 recht Nu. da kommts halt auch auf Nachfrage an, und die wird bei Linkin Park größer sein als bei OverKill oder sonst sowas "klassisches". Das kostet ja letztendlich alles Geld und die Kohle muss irgendwo wieder rein

  • die heben sie sich für die Europa Tour auf :D
    naja, wi viele leute kommen da so im schnitt? egal, aber jedenfalls brauch man da bands die ziehen und keine bands bei denen noch die Hardcore fans übrig sind

  • Metallica mit Linkin Shit und Shit Bisquit.... :kotz: Hoffe das Album ist kein Nu jetzt... :D

    And forever after, you can hear the laughter
    World's being plastered by an evil bastard
    Exterminating faster, devastating plaster
    Fabulous disaster

  • deftones halte ich für besser als linkin und limp. echt, die größte blamaga aller zeiten, dass meine band mit solchen gangstern spielen soll. echt zum heulen. obwohl... ich finde es noch schlimmer, dass metallica sich nicht die mühe geben kann, sich zu rechtfertigen ( "wir zeigens denen" oder so...). wo sind die zeiten geblieben, in denen man noch mit guns 'n roses und ozzy tourte??? echt krank, ist ja schon fast n bravo hits festival...

  • @JJMBF
    Ozzy wird wohl kaum als support für metallica durch die Lande ziehen und umgekehrt ist das schon lange nimmer so
    Die Gunners sind gerade am Auflösen
    und irgend eine Underground Truppe kann man nicht auf ne Tour mitnehmen die nen Arsch voll Geld kostet ;)


    Ihr dreht hier vieleicht durch. zumal metallica damals mit einer der Bands tourten die damals beim Publikum auch hoch im kurs stand (Guns n´ Roses) so wie diese Bands hier heute....macht sie abervtrotzdem nicht besser :D
    Nur Verdteufel ich jetzt ned Metallica wie einige schwachmaten hier (oder auch wo anderst :D )
