It looks like James Hetfield, shown here at July's Live Aid performing with Metallica, won't be rocking the Old Pueblo anytime soon.

Exit Metallica. The band, scheduled to perform at the annual KFMA Day May 16, has pulled out of the event.

“It’s done,” said Steve Groesbeck, general manager of Arizona Lotus Corporation, which owns KFMA (92.1- and 101.3-FM).

When questioned as to why, Groesbeck had no comment.

The metal act was to headline, with several other rock acts opening the daylong festival.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
