Metallica, the US heavy metal band, are to play a one-off concert at Buckingham Palace this Saturday the 27th of September, says a Press release on the group's website.

The Los Angeles-based outfit have organised the gig to commemorate the 22nd anniversary of the death of their ex-bassist Cliff Burton - who was crushed by their 'flipped' tour bus on 27th September 1986 - and to honour their greatest fan - Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The Queen has been a big fan of Metallica since their formation in 1981, and has followed their progress with interest ever since. She has all of their 11 albums, and has seen them on stage no less than 14 times, although never in her own bedroom, where this concert is set to be performed.

Metallica vocalist, James Hetfield, said:

"We all loved Cliff, and the Queen has kindly offered us the space in her Palace to remember him in."

Prince Philip won't be at the concert, as he can't stand the band.

Her Royal Highness said:

"My husband is a bit of an old fuddy-duudy."

NB It's thought Her Majesty may have confused the dead bassist with Indian octogenarian, Cliff Richard, who isn't dead yet.
