Following a couple of postponements, Metallica have announced their rescheduled South American tour with Greta Van Fleet.

"As the saying goes, the third time is the charm, and we’re excited to be in this space today to announce the re-rescheduled South American tour dates!" say the band.

"For those of you who have hung in there with us over the last 18 months since the original shows were supposed to happen, thank you for your tremendous patience! We truly cannot wait to finally visit South America for the first time in almost five years in April/May of 2022 as we head back for the originally planned six headlining shows, including two Brazilian cities we have never played in: Belo Horizonte and Curitiba. Still on board for the ride to open the show are our friends in Greta Van Fleet.
