Metallica + Slipknot New Zealand Show Announced

Friday 8th March, 2019 9:11AM

US metal gods Metallica are returning to Aotearoa this October, with support from masked monstrosities Slipknot for a headline event at Auckland's Mount Smart Stadium. Massively influential figureheads in the ear-bleeding realm of international heavy metal since their formation in 1981, this will be the first Australiasian appearance from James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich and the gang since 2013's touring bogan get-together Soundwave Festival. Metallica haven't played in New Zealand since 2010, they've since released 2016's Hardwired... to Self-Destruct as well as their infamous 2011 collaborative record with Lou Reed Lulu. You'd better dig out your best outfit because they're playing on Halloween, grip the details here...

UPDATE 2/04/19: a second and final Auckland show has been announced for early November, as the first show sold out in less than 12 minutes...
