It doesn't sound like it will be strictly metal oriented.

Let's have the NYC Marathon in Paris! How about the Daytona 500 in Tokyo? Pebble Beach Pro-Am in Scotland anyone? Maybe the Kentucky Derby should be held in Toronto!

Name recognition is fine, as long as there's no geographical tie to it. EX: Download, Sonisphere, etc.

The Dakar Rally comes to mind! It used to be the Paris to Dakar Rally, then they shortened it to The Dakar, then moved it to South America, halfway around the world from Dakar!

Rock In Rio has always been called Rock In Rio, even when it was in Lisbon, Portugal.
