on to India next. always cool when bands play these really obscure/hard to get to countries. You can always spot which countries are on the upswing economically by the live music scene and if American artists start heading there more regularly.
For example, South American/Cnetral American tours big & small are increasing all the time in the metal scene. They are more extensive than ever before. Used to be you could only hit places like Rio or Buenos Aires. Now youre starting to see more artists hit up Asia in countries like India, Singapore, China & Indonesia.
Apparently Metallica did play U.A.E. before though...back during the Black ALbum epic touring period.
