Metallica bring WorldWired tour to New Zealand in 2019

Rock legends Metallica have confirmed their long-awaited return to New Zealand shores, with dates locked in throughout October 2019.

**UPDATE** Metallica have added a second Auckland show at Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday 2 November**

Last on our shores for a run of arena shows in 2010, Metallica are set to make a triumphant return to New Zealand when they storm through Auckland later this year.

The just-announced shows will mark Metallica’s first ever run of headline stadium shows across Australia and New Zealand, as they continue their WorldWired tour, which has already seen them play more than 130 shows around the world since it’s 2016 kick-off.

If you didn’t think these shows could get any bigger, than guess again. Because they’ve locked in none other than heavy metal titans Slipknot as support on all dates.

That’s two incredible bands in one night – we advise preparing your necks from now.

As an added bonus, every ticket purchased for the tour includes a choice of standard physical or standard digital copy of the band’s 10th and current album, Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.

And, if you’re keen to relive the night over and over, all tickets also include a free MP3 download of the show attended – mixed and mastered 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 here (LiveMetallica.com/scan)
