Metallica, Muse and the Spice Girls set for Etihad Stadium gigs in summer 2019.

Metallica

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

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.

Two decades after the Spice Girls revolutionised the 90’s pop landscape - Emma, Mel B, Melanie C and Geri WANNABE back together on tour and will be in concert at the Etihad Stadium next summer!

The era-defining, history-making, best-selling female group of all time are bringing girl power back in full force as they reunite on stage for the first time since the London 2012 Olympics, hitting stadiums across the UK.

The band will be appearing at the home of the Blues on Saturday, June 1. 

Tickets go on sale on Saturday, November 10 at 10.30am and will be available from www.ticketmaster.co.uk and www.gigsandtours.com

After their iconic 1996 debut single ‘Wannabe’ topped the charts in 37 countries, Spice Girls' debut album ’Spice’ went on to sell more than 31 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling album of all time by a female group.

The girls have gone on to sell more than 85 million records, releasing three studio albums and 13 singles and winning a host of awards including a BRIT Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music. 

Because of her business commitments Victoria won’t be joining the girls on tour, but will always be one of the Spice Girls and remains aligned with Emma, Mel B, Melanie C and Geri in preserving their unique legacy. 

Looking ahead to the tour, Emma said: “It’s time to spice things up all over again!!!!! I can’t wait to perform to our forever supporting fans and a whole new spice generation! Love you all!”

Mel B said: “I’ve said it sooo many times I’m beside myself it’s actually happening yipppeeee. I’m now properly screaming it from every rooftop - me and my girls will see you all on stage!!” - Mel B

Melanie C said: "Reminiscing with the girls about how much fun we had, made me feel like it was the right time to do it all over again!"
 
Geri said: "I am so excited, together we celebrate girl power with our fans and the next generation and everyone is welcome! Hold tight it's gonna be fun xx."

Victoria added: “Being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish my girls so much love and fun as they go back on tour, I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time!”
