Exciting news, people! Metallica have announced their first live shows of 2022: a seven-date (so far) festival run in Europe.
The band's The Return Of The European Summer Vacation tour (what an excellent name!) will see them hit Denmark, the Netherlands, Italy, the Czech Republic, Belgium, Spain and Portugal in June and July, with potentially plenty of gaps in between dates for more gigs to be added…
"We have waited far too long to say these words," Metallica say, "we’re getting back out there and are finally announcing our return to Europe in 2022! Needless to say, we cannot wait to see all of you once again as our European ’Tallica Family will finally have a chance to reunite in June and July of next year.
"We can’t wait to once again take the stage as part of the time-honored tradition of summer music festivals and we’re excited to see some of our friends, both new and old, at Copenhell, Pinkpop, Firenze Rocks, Prague Rocks, Rock Werchter, Mad Cool, and NOS Alive.
