Metallica lead the first acts confirmed for next summer's Rock am Ring in Germany.

Also confirmed today are the other headliners of the four day event - Kings of Leon, Linkin Park, and Iron Maiden.

Metallica confirmed the news early on their website (here) revealing "As we embark on two short treks through Europe, we're going to give you, the ticket holders, the chance to vote on what songs you would like to hear at the show(s) that you attend...

"We normally play around 18 songs a night, and since we didn't want to be left out of the fun, the band also gets to vote . . . and we vote for a NEW SONG! That leaves the other 17 slots for you to choose, so vote for all your favorites from the close to 140 songs we've recorded in our career..."

They also revealed a date on Wednesday 4th June at Imtech Arena,  Hamburg, Germany, as part of the European Sonisphere event.

Rock am Ring takes place over 4 days from Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th June 2014, and showcases acts from the international live music scene at the Nurburgring in the Eifel mountains.

Tickets sold out last year, and will go on sale tomorrow, and eFestivals will have links to buy them then.
