Drummer Lars Ulrich said on stage: ''Between last weekend and this one, we always love being back on your shores and we will be back again very soon.''

They also performed a ''kinda new'' song which is expected to feature on their next album.
Frontman James Hetfield said: ''We have a new song. Well, it's kinda new. We hope you enjoy it. It's called 'Lords of the Summer'.''
Earlier in the day, the crowd was treated to performances from the likes of Mastodon, Alice In Chains, Dream Theater and Gallows.
