METALLICA's JAMES HETFIELD Re-Enters Rehab For Addiction
METALLICA’s JAMES HETFIELD Re-Enters Rehab For Addiction; Australia/New Zealand Tour Postponed
METALLICA has postponed its previously announced tour of Australia and New Zealand so that frontman James Hetfield can re-enter a treatment program to work on his recovery from alcohol addiction.
The band announced the postponement in an emotional note earlier tonight (Friday, September 27). They wrote: “We are truly sorry to inform our fans and friends that we must postpone our upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand.
“As most of you probably know, our brother James has been struggling with addiction on and off for many years. He has now, unfortunately, had to re-enter a treatment program to work on his recovery again.
“We fully intend to make our way to your part of the world as soon as health and schedule permit. We’ll let you know as soon as we can. Once again, we are devastated that we have inconvenienced so many of you, especially our most loyal fans who travel great distances to experience our shows. We appreciate your understanding and support for James and, as always, thank you for being a part of our METALLICA family.
“All tickets purchased to the shows in Australia and New Zealand, including Enhanced Experiences and Black Tickets, will be fully refunded.“
The tour would have been METALLICA’s first to Australia since 2013 and first visit to New Zealand since 2010.
Hetfield’s issues with addiction and alcoholism were detailed in the 2004 documentary “Some Kind Of Monster”.
