Metallica to Play “Intimate” Florida Show in November
Metallica have announced that they’ll perform an “intimate” at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida on Thursday, November 4.
That particular venue has a capacity of 7,000 spectators, which is a relatively small crowd by Metallica standards. By way of contrast, most of Metallica’s other 2021 shows will be headlining festivals like Louder Than Life and Aftershock, recent editions of which have drawn as many as 60,000 fans. Even a “regular” Metallica show on an average tour plays arenas with caps in the 15-20K range. 7,000 is still only about half the size of the venues Megadeth, Lamb of God, Trivium, and Hatebreed will be playing on their upcoming tour. So not as small as the band’s Webster Hall gig in 2016, but still.
The show is being presented by Metallica’s own Blackened American Whiskey. I don’t really know what that means other than that Metallica worked it into their contract to have lots of Blackened Whiskey signs around the venue.
Tickets will go on sale Friday, July 30th at 10 AM EDT. Fifth Member fan club subscribers get presale access starting Wednesday, July 28th at 10 AM EDT. Get all the details on how to obtain an access code to the sale here.
The band promise that they “have a few more shows in the works” as well. Stay tuned for details.
