This is dedication to the fans and the music.
Take heed, Miley Cyrus!
While Miles skipped out on her London premiere of The Last Song due to flights still being cancelled due to volcanic ash, Metallica said eyjaFjallajökUll and have been proceeding with their tour as planned.
Taking boats and buses, the boys have been traveling around the continent, having not missed a single tour date yet. Lead guitarist Kirk Hammett regaled that the boys traveled 28 hours to make a concert in Riga, Latvia and they did most of it by bus. He also admits that stepping back on the bus was a hard as he was plague by the memory of bassist Cliff Burton, who died back in 1986 when the Metallic bus turned over in Sweden.
But the show must go on and Metallic intends to keep it that way. Their next stop is Moscow, which will mean a 13 hour train ride from Lithuania, where they are currently hanging out.
Hopefully, the ban on air travel will be up soon.
But talk about hard-core! Hell yes!

It's sabotaging the airline industry!
Airlines have lost at least $1.7 billion because of the travel disruptions caused by the volcanic ash from Iceland!
The head of the International Air Transport Association is encouraging the European governments to come up with a way to compensate the airlines for the loss, similar to the US government after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The ash is clearing slowly but surely so hopefully everything will be back to normal soon!

UK tweeners must be flipping a shiz!
The Icelandic volcano that erupted and grounded flights all over Europe because of the amount of ash in the air has forced Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth to cancel their appearance at the UK premiere of The Last Song!
However, for all the Europeans devastated by this news and still want a Disney fix, Selena Gomez is stranded overseas until the airwaves clear!!
