Last week, it was revealed that The Weeknd had put in $ 7 million (£ 5.1 billion) of its own money for a special performance.
Meanwhile, Metallica, according to drummer Lars Ulrich, are only making “glacial” progress on their new album. He said, “These are at the peak of time and nothing is allowed to happen.”
In November Ulrich stated that he and his bandmates were engaged in some “very serious writing” sessions for the album, with the drummer promising next month that the upcoming LP would be the best record that Metallica has ever produced.
