Metallica to open for Muse in Buddha Land

Seth Auberon, Wisdom Quarterly; Summer Sonic 2013;

Summer Sonic 2013 comes to Tokyo and Osaka with Muse, Imagine Dragons, Fall Out Boy, Linkin Park, M.I.A., Smashing Pumpkins, Cyndi Lauper, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Cheap Trick.

Metallica's opening for Muse in Buddha Land. What's Metallica? You should know, dumb@$$; you wear their t-shirt. Oh yeah, heh-heh-heh; that's cool! But like, Butthead, where's Buddha Land?

It's Japan. Where? That place that blew up. Oh yeah, you mean Fuk-U-shima? Huh-huh-huh, huh-huh-huh, you said -shima! No I didn't, oh yeah, heh-heh-heh.

OMG, I love yōkai! (Andre Durao/AFP)
Why does Buddha Land get all the best concerts -- like Live at Budokan, remember? Yeah, Beavis, I remember. But this is Muse, so pay attention!

Ever since the war that ended all wars (for Japan), the Nichiren and Zen Buddhists there really like Western influences, music in particular. The Japanese get the best shows, the scariest monsters (yōkai), and more nuclear fallout than any other nation in the world. Why should 2013 be any different?

You, too, can travel to the international crossroads of the second greatest economy in the world, Tokyo, and its second-city, Osaka, to witness Muse and some pretty good opening bands like punks Palma Violets. And do it for FREE if you're lucky enough to win tickets from KROQ FM:

(N.W.O.R.) This information runs counter to tax-supported religion and very profitable
scientific evolution. But it aligns with scriptures from around the world. What goes
against our indoctrination is buried. But truth is stranger than fiction.
