METALLICA: comments on tour:

“It’s been over six years since we last visited Australia and nine years since we were lucky enough to set foot in New Zealand… we’re long overdue!

“This trip represents another new adventure for us during the ‘WorldWired’ tour; it will be the first time we have ever headlined stadiums in Australia and New Zealand.

“To help us celebrate, our friends in SLIPKNOT will be joining us for the journey… six cities, black tickets, enhanced experiences, free albums and downloads, and more!!

“All the perks of the current ‘WorldWired’ tour will be in place starting with the ‘Wherever I May Roam Black Ticket’ we introduced a year ago in North America; just one ticket will allow floor access to any METALLICA show in this part of the world. ‘Black Ticket’ holders need only choose the show(s) they would like to attend and make an online reservation no less than 48 hours before the gig. A limited number of these Black Tickets will be available for $598 AUD through CID Entertainment.

“As with most of the ‘WorldWired’ shows, every ticket purchased includes a choice of a standard physical or standard digital copy of ‘Hardwired…To Self-Destruct’. And once again, all tickets will include a free MP3 download of the show(s) attended, mixed and mastered by the team behind ‘Hardwired’. The free full-show downloads can be obtained by scanning or entering the barcode from that show’s ticket stub at

“Last but not least, the Enhanced Experience options will be available with three choices of special packages, including premium tickets and amenities ranging from early access to the venue and the ‘Memory Remains’ traveling museum to meeting members of the band. Visit CID Entertainment for full package details.”

* Wherever I May Roam Black Tickets are non-transferable and if re-sold will be revoked. Each ticket is good for entry to METALLICA specific shows and may not be used for festivals, promotional shows, benefit concerts or any other dates not included in this tour of Australia/New Zealand announced on March 8, 2019. Use of a “Black Ticket” will require an online reservation for each show you plan to attend no less than 48 hours in advance. More details about how to use your “Black Ticket” will be sent to purchasers via e-mail.

** Every ticket purchased through official outlets includes your choice of a standard physical or standard digital copy of “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct”. Fans will receive an e-mail from their ticketing agent with information on how to redeem their albums. Full details of how you can gift the album, should you already own it, will be given on the redemption page.
