Well, the only time they tour the US extensively is when they have a new album to support. Other than that we don't get much from them. All the festivals are in Europe every summer so that's why they play more there. Plus, Metallica is one of the few bands who are able to work the schedule they want. If they only want to tour the US every five years then there's really nothing anybody can do to change that. They have enough money and don't need to tour North America as often as other bands do.
