Metallica Rock Hall of Fame Induction has begun


Metallica (2008) Tune in to Fuse TV (check local cable provider for channel) now to watch Metallica's Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. The ceremonies begin at 9pm EST. The band hosted an exclusive pre-party at the Cleveland House of Blues for a very select few friends, family and management.

Jason Newsted is expected to perform with Metallica, although only for one show. Kirk Hammett confirmed the rumor that bassist Jason Newsted will reunite with Metallica for a one-off performance at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

"Jason Newsted will be there, and he will be playing with us at one point," Hammett said. "We went as a band when Black Sabbath was being inducted, and at that time Blondie was also being inducted that night. And there was so many politics and so much drama that, you know, we collectively said to each other, 'We don't want any of that,' because it kind of, it puts a really bad, sour note on the whole celebration itself."

The reunion will mark the first time Newsted has played with Metallica since he left the band in 2001 to pursue his other band Echobrain. He was a member of the band for fourteen years.

Jason Newsted will be inducted with Rob Trujillo and Cliff Burton. Rumor is Cliff Burton's father will accept the award for his late son.
