Metallica Announce Australian Tour With Slipknot
The two biggest metal bands in the world will head down under this October, playing five dates in Australia and one in New Zealand.
Slipknot announced the tour via their Twitter this afternoon:

This tour comes hot on the heels of Slipknot’s Knotfest tour with Gojira, Volbeat, and Behemoth this July through September. On the one hand, that makes for a grueling year for the Iowan nine-piece; on the other, when Metallica ask you to open for them, you’re probably all right with a little jet lag.
Tickets for Metallica’s Australian tour go on sale on Monday, March 18th.
