Metallica had to cancel their tour with Slipknot in Australia and New Zealand, because James Hetfield is back in rehab.  They issued a statement saying, quote, “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 appreciate your understanding and support for James and thank you for being a part of our Metallica family.”
