Following their inaugural Orion Music + More festival in June, Metallica has announced that they will play two dates in Mexico City in early August.
But these won’t be just any regular shows for the band or their fans; Metallica has posted information about it under the title, “The Next Level Chapter Of Touring Begins In Mexico!”
Here’s the word from Metallica:
After years in the making, we are beyond excited to finally unveil the all new, out of control, massive stage and Metalli-show to some of our most rabid fans in the world with two shows in Mexico City at Sports Palace on August 1 and 2, 2012.
When we last visited Mexico City in June of 2009, those three sold out nights with over 150,000 of our craziest friends at Foro Sol Stadium were some of the most memorable, over the top, insane shows we have ever played. Now we'll be back with a brand new show that features your favorite iconic elements spanning our entire 30 year touring career all on a massive stage that is twice the size of the World Magnetic set up... we think it's something that needs to be seen to believed!!!
Tickets go on sale on Saturday, March 24 at 11:00 AM at Ticketmaster.mx.
There will be a Banamex pre-sale starting Thursday, March 22 at 11:00 AM, ending Friday March 23 at 8:00 PM.
Finally, Met Club members should log in for details about their special pre-sale that begins on March 20 at 11:00 AM and will end on March 21 at 8:00 PM.
Mexico will be the first to see what will be the cornerstone of our touring escapades for years to come. Don't be scared boys and girls, this is going next level and we are just getting started!
