Metallica rocks Istanbul in massive gig
Some 40,000 diehard Metallica fans sang along with the heavy metal group in Гќstanbul on Sunday night, accompanying the band members, who were singing live onstage in Metallica's third stadium gig in Turkey in 15 years.

Thousands of fans, from every corner of Turkey and nearly all wearing black T-shirts, packed Ali Sami Yen Stadium for the concert, which was jointly organized by event management companies Purple Concerts and EPD.

A specially built 800-square-meter stage, which organizers said was the largest ever built in Turkey for such an event, was erected for the concert at Ali Sami Yen in Mecidiyeköy, where fans began forming lines Saturday night -- nearly 24 hours ahead of the concert.

Turkish heavy metal band Pentagram took to the stage as one of the opening acts at the concert. Metallica, made up of guitarist-vocalist James Hetfield, drummer Lars Ulrich, lead guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo, appeared at 9:40, with frontman Hetfield saluting the audience. Although some fans argued that the band is getting older and is no longer in good form, Metallica still managed to draw loud cheers from the audience, which even included a fan who came all the way from Iran to watch his favorite band perform live, according to the Sabah daily.

This was the band's first outing in Turkey with Trujillo, who joined the band in 2001, replacing Jason Newsted. In 1993, 48,000 people watched Metallica's first-ever Гќstanbul concert. The band rocked the city for a second time in 1999 in a concert which drew 46,500 fans, according to the Anatolia news agency.

Formed in Los Angeles in 1981, the four-member band is one of the most commercially successful and influential heavy metal acts. With more than 120 million records sold worldwide, the band has won seven Grammy Awards and has had four albums peak at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. The band has recently finished recording their upcoming ninth studio album, "Death Magnetic," slated for release in September.
