METALLICA will embark on a tour of Australia and New Zealand in October.
Says the band: “It’s been over six years since we last visited Australia and nine years since we were lucky enough to set foot in New Zealand… we’re long overdue!
“This trip represents another new adventure for us during the ‘WorldWired’ tour; it will be the first time we have ever headlined stadiums in Australia and New Zealand.
“To help us celebrate, our friends in SLIPKNOT will be joining us for the journey… six cities, black tickets, enhanced experiences, free albums and downloads, and more!!
“All the perks of the current ‘WorldWired’ tour will be in place starting with the ‘Wherever I May Roam Black Ticket’ we introduced a year ago in North America; just one ticket will allow floor access to any METALLICA show in this part of the world. ‘Black Ticket’ holders need only choose the show(s) they would like to attend and make an online reservation no less than 48 hours before the gig. A limited number of these Black Tickets will be available for $598 AUD through CID Entertainment.
“As with most of the ‘WorldWired’ shows, every ticket purchased includes a choice of a standard physical or standard digital copy of ‘Hardwired…To Self-Destruct’. And once again, all tickets will include a free MP3 download of the show(s) attended, mixed and mastered by the team behind ‘Hardwired’. The free full-show downloads can be obtained by scanning or entering the barcode from that show’s ticket stub at LiveMetallica.com/scan.
“Last but not least, the Enhanced Experience options will be available with three choices of special packages, including premium tickets and amenities ranging from early access to the venue and the ‘Memory Remains’ traveling museum to meeting members of the band. Visit CID Entertainment for full package details.”
Fan-club presales begin Tuesday, March 12 at 1 p.m. local time for Legacy Members and 2 p.m. local time for Fifth Members. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Monday, March 18.
