Metallica make offer to tour with Guns N' Roses

the band reveal they are big fans of the new album

Metallica have revealed that they would embark on a co-headlining tour with comeback rockers Guns N' Roses.

Drummer Lars Ulrich made the announcement, and admitted he would jump at the chance to tour alongside Axl Rose's legendary group. He revealed the band are big fans of their rock counterparts, who they rose to fame alongside in the 1980s.

He's quoted as saying, "We're road dogs. We love to tour. So we'd never say no. We've learned never to say no to anything, and all four of us love (the new Guns N' Roses' album) 'Chinese Democracy'."

But Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett was slightly more realistic and added, "The real question is whether they would tour with us."
