Metallica came out of the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday weekend hot, announcing a new album, new single, and new tour dates for 2023. The thrash metal pioneers will bring the M72 World Tour to 22 cities across the globe in 2023 and 2024, covering spans in both Europe and North America in both years.

According to the announcement on social media, Metallica will play two shows in each city on the tour, performing separate set lists for each show, with different opening acts – potentially heightening the fan interest in trying to catch both performances in one weekend.

“Starting in April of 2023, we’ll be visiting 22 different cities around the world and playing two nights in each city, with each “No Repeat Weekend” show a completely unique experience: Two totally different set lists with two different bands opening the show each night!” the band says in the announcement of the shows on its website. “Purchase a two-day ticket, and you won’t see the same song twice for a total of over 30 songs spanning our 40+ years of being lucky enough to make music.”

Dates for the M72 World Tour kick off on April 27 and 29 in Amsterdam, with European shows in Paris, Hamburg, and Gothenburg Sweden through mid-June of next year. North American dates kick off on August 4 & 6 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, with shows at Stade Olympique (Montreal), AT&T Stadium (Arlington), SoFi Stadium (Los Angeles), State Farm Stadium (Phoenix), The Dome at America’s Center (St. Louis), and Ford Field (Detroit) on the route through November of next year. The band swings back to Europe in May 2024, performing in Munich, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Warsaw, and Madrid through mid-July. The 2024 North American leg will bring Metallica to Gillette Stadium (Foxborough, MA), Soldier Field (Chicago), U.S. Bank Stadium (Minneapolis), Commonwealth Stadium (Edmonton), and Lumen Field (Seattle) in the summer, with a grand finale of back-to-back weekends of back-t0-back shows at Foro Sol in Mexico City scheduled for September 20 & 22 and 27&29, 2024.

Support will come from Architects, Mammoth WVH, Five Finger Death Punch, Ice Nine Kills, Pantera, Volbeat, and Greta Van Fleet. The specifics on who is performing where are included below with the tour dates.

Tickets will be on sale for Metallica tour dates this week, with presales launching on Wednesday and a general public sale beginning on Friday.

The tour will support the new music from the band, which announced the album – 72 Seasons – and a single – Lux Aeterna – alongside the tour dates. The album is scheduled for release in April 2023. The single’s video is embedded below:
