Metallica have announced that they will be performing at the 59th annual Grammy Award Show. The ceremony will take place February 12, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA and will be will air on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.
The band said the following:
“First, it was a total honor to be nominated, but now this?!!? We’re beyond excited that we have been invited to perform on the 59th annual Grammy Awards telecast on Sunday, February 12, 2017. It’s been three years since we were lucky enough to participate in the awards show when we last performed with world-renowned Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang and we’re thrilled to be asked back.
We have something very unique and special planned for this celebratory night, so tune in to watch on CBS-TV… check those local listings for your timezone and keep watching here for more information.”
Joey Jordison previously revealed that he was suffering from a nurological disorder, called transverse myelitis, around the time of his departure from Slipknot, and he has opened up about his condition in many interviews since. Now in a new chat with AXS, he said he still isn’t sure why he got fired, and that he “would never have quit.”
He said the following when asked why the band didn’t discuss his illness in the press:
“That’s a, you know, really great question, and that’s a hard question to answer as I know that everything is publicized right now so I gotta really watch my words. The thing is, I got visited in the hospital by one member of the band when they all knew I was in there… and next thing you know, I got exited from the band. And I don’t know why. I don’t understand what the deal was. There’s been a bunch of rumors and stuff like, you know, why it was, and it is absolutely untrue… but it’s OK. Life takes you down weird paths… I came back right after I got through with this, and I came back, and I did the festivals, and I killed it. I didn’t quit Slipknot. I would never have quit Slipknot, ever. I just want the fans to know that. It’s important for everyone to know that.”
