Metallica To Mix Comedy And Music With New Tour

According to Rolling Stone, metal legends Metallica have announced a tour that will take them well into 2019.

What’s interesting about this tour you ask? Well, the Rolling Stone article goes on to say, “Comedian Jim Breuer will host a ‘Light It Up’ pre-show party at every gig. Jim, along with a DJ to get the night rocking with some great tunes, hits the stage before the band with comedy, fan interaction, giveaways and much more.”

You’ll remember that last year Metallica released their 10th LP Hardwired…to Self Destruct, as well as their reissue of 1986 LP Master of Puppets. The tour kicks off September 2nd in Madison, WI at the Kohl Center. See more dates below, and you can find more information on the band’s website.
