Metallica Announce 2022 European Tour
The pandemic isn’t gonna be quite under enough control for the 2021 summer concert season to really blast back in full swing — but summer 2022 is looking promising. I mean, who knows what fresh Hells we’ll experience by then. Maybe we won’t even be here!
Assuming we are, Metallica will return to Europe in the summer of 2022 to headline a whole buncha fests.
Sez the band:
“We have waited far too long to say these words – we’re getting back out there and are finally announcing our return to Europe in 2022! Needless to say, we cannot wait to see all of you once again as our European ’Tallica Family will finally have a chance to reunite in June and July of next year.
“We can’t wait to once again take the stage as part of the time-honored tradition of summer music festivals and we’re excited to see some of our friends, both new and old, at Copenhell, Pinkpop, Firenze Rocks, Prague Rocks, Rock Werchter, Mad Cool, and NOS Alive.
“Stay tuned – we’ll be back soon to keep adding to this list. We hope you, your family, and your friends are safe and in good health, and ready to go next level, next summer!”
