Metallica announce South American tour with Greta Van Fleet

Metallica have announced dates for a South American tour next spring with guests Greta Van Fleet.

“As the WorldWired tour hits the last leg in Europe, there are still so many places left to visit; South America, you’re up first in 2020!,” says Metallica. “The last time we had the pleasure was in 2017 as part of the Lollapalooza festival and now it’s time to come back with the full-on stadium experience (as seen in North America and Europe) for six headlining shows including two Brazilian cities we have never played in – Belo Horizonte and Curitiba.”

“The perks of the current WorldWired Tour will be in place starting with the Wherever I May Roam Black Ticket we introduced over a year ago in North America,” continues the band. “Just one ticket will allow floor access to any Metallica show on the South American tour. Black Ticket holders need only choose the show(s) they would like to attend and make an online reservation no less than 48 hours before the gig.

"A limited number of these Black Tickets will be available for $598 USD through CID Entertainment. And once again, all tickets will include a free MP3 download of the show(s) attended, mixed by the team behind Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. The free full-show downloads can be obtained by scanning or entering the barcode from that show’s ticket stub at

“Last but not least, the Enhanced Experience options will be available with three choices of special packages, including premium tickets and amenities ranging from early access to the venue and the Memory Remains traveling museum to meeting members of the band. Visit CID Entertainment for full package details.”

The two-week stadium series will begin in Santiago, Chile on April 15, and include a stop in Argentina and four shows in Brazil.

Metallica fan-club presales will begin on Monday, August 19 at 10:00 a.m. local time for Legacy Members and 11:00 a.m. local time for Fifth Members; tickets for all four Brazil dates will be available for online purchase beginning Thursday, August 22 at 10:00 a.m. local time, with the box office on sale following at 12:00 noon local, while tickets for Santiago go on sale Thursday, August 22 at 11:00 a.m. local time, and, tickets for Buenos Aires will be on sale on Tuesday, August 27 at 10:00 a.m. local time.
