Metallica announce debut Hong Kong concert

Metallica will perform their first-ever show in Hong Kong in the New Year as part of the band’s World Wired tour in support of their tenth album, “Hardwired…To Self Destruct.”

“We told you how excited we are to hit the ground running in 2017 with tour dates in Asia and we’re back today with a Metallica first – a show in Hong Kong!,” says the band. “Thirty-five years and still beyond psyched to go to new frontiers, so this promises to be a very special night as we hit the stage at the AsiaWorld-Expo on January 20, 2017.”

Tickets will go on sale October 27 at 10:00am local time through HK Ticketing ( and hotline 31 288 288), K11 Select and Tom Lee Music Store.

The Hong Kong date marks the second concert in Asia in 2017, following Metallica’s opening show of the year at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, South Korea on January 11.

The group previously revealed plans for six dates in the region, with four more to be announced soon as they prepare for the November 18 release of “Hardwired…To Self Destruct.”

Metallica will open the world tour with shows in Latin America this fall starting on October 26 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
