Metallica says its frontman James Hetfield has re-entered rehab, and so the band is canceling its upcoming tour in Australia and New Zealand. We thought he just got out... maybe he never left?

Three of the heavy metall band’s members posted a press release asserting the choice and apologizing to followers. The assertion by drummer Lars Ulrich, guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Rob Trujillo says anybody who bought tickets for the remaining present dates will obtain automated refunds. Really... didn't he just hold a press conference showing off his classic cars last month?

It is so hard to keep track we'll just wish him well. Now... where's our refund!
