With recent appearances at mega-festivals like Aftershock and Louder Than Life officially in the books for 2021, Metallica are showing no signs of slowing going into the new year as dates for 2022 are already being firmed up.

Among the most recent announcements include confirmations of both a run of rescheduled South American dates and a domestic headlining event at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. Merging the worlds of heavy metal and the Raider Nation, Metallica will perform at the newest NFL stadium and home to the freshly relocated Las Vegas Raiders.

The Sin City affair will serve as the precursor to the band’s six-date stretch which kicks of April 17th in Santiago, Chile and wraps in mid-May in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. All of the dates, including the Las Vegas showcase will feature an opening set from Zeppelin-esque rock sensation, Greta Van Fleet.

Metallica has spent the year celebrating the 30th anniversary of their seminal self-titled album, better known as the Black Album with a succession of festivities culminating with the remastered anniversary edition and the release of the compilation tribute project in the Blacklist album which featured contributions from the likes of Corey Taylor, Dave Gahan, Elton John, Ghost, Royal Blood, Biffy Clyro, Weezer, Volbeat, and some 53 artists in total.

Marking the band’s live return to the stage in more than 2 years, Metallica has performed both rare, intimate club gigs and anchored major festivals like Aftershock and Louder Than Life with two-night engagements that have featured two unique sets spanning the band’s unparalleled catalog.

Tickets for Mtallica’s Las Vegas show will be available starting Oct. 29th at 10AM Pacific. Pre-sale options are currently available for Legacy Members and Fifth Members. Tickets and complete info are available – HERE
