STADIUM DATE: US heavy metal giants Metallica will be heading to the Etihad next June

Manchester City will welcome Metallica to the Etihad Stadium next summer.

Metallica's WorldWired Tour has confirmed its return to the UK, this time for two outdoor gigs at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium and London’s Twickenham Stadium.

The band will be appearing at the home of the Blues on Tuesday, June 18, 2019. Tickets go on sale on 28 September at 10am at LiveNation.co.uk.

The new dates are Metallica’s first in the UK since their indoor run of shows between September 2017 and May 2018 that broke attendance records in 29 venues across Europe.

Kicking off May 1, 2019 at Lisbon’s Estadio Restelo, the 25 newly-announced WorldWired shows across 20 countries include a dozen cities not visited on those 2017-2018 legs of the tour—including Milan, Zürich, Dublin, Brussels (for the first time since 1988), Berlin, Moscow, Warsaw, Bucharest and Gothenburg, and a first-ever appearances in Trondheim Norway, Hämeenlinna Finland and Tartu Estonia.

Special guests Ghost and Bokassa will provide support on all dates.

The Wherever I May Roam Black Ticket will also be returning for the tour: one ticket allowing floor access to any Metallica show on the 2019 UK/Europe tour. From Amsterdam to Zurich and all points between, Black Ticket holders need only choose the show (s) and make an online reservation no less than 48 hours before the gig. A limited number of 750 of these Black Tickets* will be available for 598 Euros, more info here

As with most of Metallica’s WorldWired shows, every ticket purchased includes a choice of standard physical or standard digital copy of the band’s 10th and current album, 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...To Self-Destruct. The free full-show downloads can be obtained by scanning or entering the barcode from that show’s ticket stub at LiveMetallica.com/scan.

Enhanced experience options will also be returning in partnership with the team at CID Entertainment: Three options of special enhanced experiences, including premium tickets and amenities ranging from early access to the venue and the "Memory Remains" traveling museum to meeting members of the band.
