Metallica Is Set To ‘Take Over’ North America With Special Events On M72 Tour
Following a series of European performances, Metallica is heading to North America this August with their M72 World Tour. According to a recent announcement on their official website, the band members have some ‘takeover events’ planned to go with their shows in the US and Canada.
Their statement read:
“We’re just a little over a month away from the North American kick-off of the M72 tour in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Friday, August 4! And you know that when we town for more than a day, we’ve gotta make a weekend out of it, so we’ve got details for you on many of the takeover activities as the tour travels across the country this summer and fall.”
They revealed what’s in store by writing:
“On each Saturday between the two ‘No Repeat’ weekend shows, there will be film fests, pop-up stores, Ross Halfin book signings, AWMH-sponsored opportunities to give back, and so much more. And let’s not forget live music! The lineup making its way through North America with us includes some familiar faces: OTTTO and Bastardane, along with tribute bands Damage Inc., Motorbreath, and Sandman. Plus, a few more acts will join the fun in individual cities.”
As for tickets, the band said:
“Tickets for most of the live shows and film fests go on sale this Friday, June 30, at 10 AM local time, with pre-sales for Fifth Members starting tomorrow, June 27, at 10 AM local time.”
Along with their statement, Metallica shared a schedule of the events for each show. They mentioned that the activity list will continue to be updated as the summer rolls on.
The band’s ‘M72 World Tour’ kicked off in late April in Amsterdam. They have been performing two shows in each city, with ‘No Repeat Weekend’ having different setlists and supporting acts.
