Tickets will go on general sale on Friday, March 4 at 10am, while Metallica's fan club members will be able to get their hands on presale tickets on February 28.

Catch Metallica, GVF and INK at the following:

Metallica might have a record out in 2022, too, with frontman James Hetfield revealing last May that they had “quite a few songs” written that would hopefully become an album. "Well, hopefully a new album," he said. "Whatever you call it these days – I guess it's an album, a CD, a group of songs, a collection, whatever, a stream or however you get your music now.”

Then, in September, drummer Lars Ulrich told SiriusXM’s Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk: “We’re on that path. I don’t know if it’s cohesive enough to call a record, but we’re dipping our toes.”
