WorldWired down under: Metallica announces Australia and New Zealand tour

93

ABC/Randy HolmesMetallica will bring their WorldWired tour Down Under this fall, kicking off  a tour of Australia and New Zealand October 17 in Perth.

“It’s been over six years since we last visited Australia and nine years since we were lucky enough to set foot in New Zealand,” the metal legends say in a statement. “We’re long overdue!”

The trek will mark the first time Metallica has headlined stadiums in Australia and New Zealand.

As with Metallica’s North American dates, attendees of the Australia and New Zealand tour will have the opportunity to buy the Wherever I May Roam Black Ticket, which gets you one floor ticket to any and all of the shows on the run. That’ll cost you $598 Australian dollars, which is just over $420 in the States.

If you attend the Australia and New Zealand tour, you’ll also get to see Slipknot, who’ll be the special guest for the shows. The masked metallers are releasing their new album August 9.

Members of Metallica’s Fifth Member fan club will have access to pre-sale tickets starting Tuesday, March 12 at 1 p.m. local time. Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Monday, March 18 at 2 p.m. local time. Visit Metallica.com for more info.

Metallica’s current North American tour continues Saturday, March 9 in Louisville, Kentucky.
