Metallica announce rescheduled South American tour dates

Metallica have announced rescheduled dates for their twice-postponed South American tour.

The six-show series, with guests Greta Van Fleet, was originally scheduled for April 2020 before the global health crisis shut down the live music industry; Metallica had rebooked the concerts for December 2020 before being forced to move them a second time.

“As the saying goes, the third time is the charm, and we’re excited to be in this space today to announce the re-rescheduled South American tour dates!,” says Metallica. “For those of you who have hung in there with us over the last 18 months since the original shows were supposed to happen, thank you for your tremendous patience! We truly cannot wait to finally visit South America for the first time in almost five years in April/May of 2022 as we head back for the originally planned six headlining shows, including two Brazilian cities we have never played in: Belo Horizonte and Curitiba. Still on board for the ride to open the show are our friends in Greta Van Fleet.

“Hang on to your tickets from those originally scheduled shows way back in April of 2020, as they will be honored for the new dates. Where applicable, refund information is below; we encourage you to visit the website or location where you purchased your tickets for additional details should you be unable to join us in the spring of 2022. Please note that the Buenos Aires show is back to the original location of Campo Argentino de Polo, and tickets are still available for most shows.”

“We wish you, your families, and your loved ones good health as we turn the page to the next chapter of this difficult time,”
adds the band. “We cannot wait to spend time in person with our extended Metallica family next year!”
