Big Concerts, in conjunction with MK and 5fm have opened an invitation to the public to vote for the opening act for Metallica’s concerts in April.

Local music channel MK will be launching a poll that allows fans to nominate and vote for their favourite local band to play with the US band.

MK says due to the magnitude of the opportunity all nominated bands must adhere to the following criteria:

  • Nominated Band MUST have big festival experience (local or abroad)
  • Nominated Band MUST have a valid discography
  • Nominated Band MUST have undertaken national or international tours

Some bands have already started on the campaign to get fans to nominate them by posting the link to their Facebook and Twitter pages.

Metallica will be playing on the April 24 in Cape Town and in Johannesburg on the April 27.
