Metallica To Play Free Show In London

October 28, 1997 12:00 AM ET

Heavy metal kings Metallica may still be searching for a place to play a free show in the U.S., but it seems as though they found somewhere to play in Britain.

The English music weekly NME reports the acclaimed rock quartet will perform at Ministry of Sound in London on Nov. 13; though no admission will be charged, fans are encouraged to contribute money for charity.

The free concert will help celebrate the Nov. 18 release of Re-Load, a collection of 13 unreleased songs recorded during the band's Load sessions.

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
