The drummer of the band speaks...
Speaking with BBC News, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich said the band would play their hits at tonight's Glastonbury headline set.
Before the band left the US for Glastonbury, Lars Ulrich said the band had not yet "honed" their setlist for the gig, but there were certain tracks fans can expect to hear.
Ulrich stated: "Listen, we have about 70 songs that we rotate, more or less, and can play fairly. We haven't played the same set list in 10 years – because we have a lot of fans that travel with us and see all 19 shows on a tour. But obviously there are certain cornerstones of a Metallica set list – 'Nothing Else Matters', 'Enter Sandman', 'Master Of Puppets', 'One', 'Sad But True'. It would probably be fairly surprising if most of those didn't show up at Glastonbury."
Ulrich also talked about some other gigs that were on the band's "bucket list" after debuting at Glastonbury, saying: "I think it would be a hoot to play at the Super Bowl. That's a very big deal, but whether they'd welcome a band like us, I don't know. When U2 played the Academy Awards a couple of months ago, I sat and said, 'That could be fun to do one day.'"
