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.
Tickets go on sale on 28 September at 10am at LiveNation.co.uk.
The new dates are Metallica’s first in the UK since Sept. 2017 to May 2018 indoor run that broke attendance records in 29 venues across the continent.
Kicking off May 1, 2019 at Lisbon’s Estadio Restelo, the 25 newly announced WorldWired shows across 20 countries include a good 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 first ever appearances in Trondheim Norway, Hämeenlinna Finland and Tartu Estonia.
Special guests Ghost and Bokassa will provide support on all dates.
With this kind of itinerary, it’s natural that the Wherever I May Roam Black Ticket will be returning: 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.
