It’s official. Hard rock veterans Metallica are bringing their World Magnetic Tour to New Zealand and Australia this October/November.
The epic world tour started out in Arizona, October 2008 in support of their current album Death Magnetic. Currently on tour in Europe, the Australian and New Zealand dates mark the culmination of their world tour and will be Metallica’s first Australian shows since January 2004.
At least fans will get their moneys worth, with the band “taking to the stage for more than two hours, featuring material drawn from throughout their career and performing in the round in the centre of the arena, on a custom built stage and with their full world tour production.”
