Metallica Announces Additional Live Dates in Europe Next Summer
Metallica today announced additional live dates in Europe next summer. In addition to three dates in Germany announced last week, the band has added dates in The Netherlands, Belgium, and England. See below for a list of announced dates with on-sale information. Additional dates will be announced later this week and all shows in Germany are on-sale now.
For the first time, the multi-platinum, award-winning band will be performing an All Request show. As a special tribute to their fans, the band has introduced "Metallica By Request", the ultimate interactive Metallica concert experience.
Fans who purchase tickets online to these upcoming European dates will be invited to vote on the set list Metallica will play at their show - giving them the chance to help build their dream set list from 30+ years of Metallica's material and close to 140 recorded songs to date. Metallica's traditional 18-song set will include the 17 top voted songs and as the band did not want to be left out of the fun, their vote for the 18th slot goes to adding a brand new song! Fans will be able to visit www.metallica.com to see what songs fellow fans are voting for and the results of their specific shows. Those who have already purchased tickets online to the dates in Germany should expect to receive an email shortly, which will contain a code to access the voting ballot.
"We are once again psyched to break free of the four walls in the studio to get energized by our devoted European friends for a couple of weeks next May and June," said Lars Ulrich upon last week's initial announcement. "On top of that, the fact that all our nutty fans will pick the songs we play should be some next level fun and take a big load off my shoulders as the guy who usually writes the set list!"
Stay tuned for additional European dates to be announced later this week and visit www.metallica.com for more details on the voting process.
