Metallica, one of the biggest names in heavy metal music, kick off their 2023-2024 world tour in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Fans of the band are excited to see them perform live once again, and the tour promises to be a memorable one. Here is all the information you need to know about the Metallica world tour, including the tour dates, venues, and ticket information.
Metallica 2023 worldwide tour kick-off on April 27, 2023, in Amsterdam, Netherlands, until November 12, 2023, in St. Louis, USA. In addition, Metallica 2024 world tour kick-off on May 24, 2024, in Munich, Germany, until September 29, 2024, in Mexico City, Mexico.
Metallica kick off their highly anticipated “M72 World Tour” in Amsterdam’s Johan Cruijff Arena on April 27th, 2023. This two-year worldwide tour supports the release of their latest album, 72 Seasons. Tickets for this monumental event are available now.
During the first night in Amsterdam, Metallica performed three songs from their newest album, 72 Seasons: “Lux Æterna,” “Screaming Suicide,” and “Sleepwalk My Life Away.” Of these three songs, “Screaming Suicide” and “Sleepwalk My Life Away” were played live for the first time ever, making it a historic moment for Metallica fans.
The concert was comprised of 16 songs, with each album receiving equal representation. They played three songs from their albums Ride the Lightning (1984), Master of Puppets (1986), and Metallica (1991), also known as “The Black Album.” Additionally, they played one song from each of their other albums, showcasing their entire discography.
The concert began with “Orion,” an instrumental classic from their album Master of Puppets, marking the first time since 2011 that the band has opened with this song. The night ended with the band’s legendary song “Master of Puppets,” which had gained popularity after being featured on Netflix’s Stranger Things.
Metallica’s performance also included masterpieces like “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” “Sad but True,” “Battery,” and “Seek & Destroy.”
Fans were disappointed that popular songs like “Enter Sandman,” “Wherever I May Roam,” and “Creeping Death” were not performed during this show. However, it is likely that these hits will be played during the second night of the Amsterdam tour stop, taking place on April 29th.
One of the unique aspects of this tour is that the band is performing in the round, meaning they are surrounded by the audience on all sides as they play in the middle of the venue.
Also, regular tickets for Metallica‘s next concerts in 2023-2024 ticket prices start at about $150, with the lowest price appearing to be $127, and increasing according to the seats and levels purchased. Save for the earlier concerts ticket levels are not established except for their regular ones. This tour is most potentially contributing to Metallica‘s net worth too.
During the tour, Metallica is visiting a total of 22 different cities worldwide and plays for two nights in each city.
Metallica‘s tour opening acts include Five Finger Death Punch, Ice Nine Kills, and MammothWVH, Pantera, Architects, Greta Van Fleet, Volbeat, and more surprise music bands and artists.
