We knew this was coming due to a member spilling during a recent interview but now it is official. Metallica are headed Down Under this Fall. Here is what they had to say on their website, followed by the dates:
We know, we know . . . it has been WAY too long since we visited this part of the world, but we're here to tell you that it is game on!!!! We can't wait to head over to New Zealand and many parts of Australia bringing the World Magnetic Tour to places it has not rocked yet.
Starting October 13, 2010 in Auckland, NZ, we'll also be in Brisbane, Perth, Sydney, Adelaide, and Melbourne . . . dates and venues are below.
We look forward to seeing all our friends there who have patiently (or maybe not so patiently!) waited over six years!!!
