The mighty Metallica is currently working on their highly anticipated new album, and recently promised an “in your face” 2016 that begins in Minnesota! The metal giants will be headlining the first rock show at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis! Not only that, but Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat will be performing as well!
Here’s their official statement via Metallica.com: “We had such an amazing time playing in our hometown stadium the night before the Super Bowl that when asked we couldn’t say “no” to another chance to be a part of a very special weekend, the opening of the brand new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, MN! On Saturday, August 20, 2016 we’ll be hitting the stage for the first ever rock show at the stadium as part of the opening weekend festivities featuring Luke Bryant the Friday before. Joining us that night are our friends Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat for a proper kick-off to the new football season in a new home for the Vikings. Tickets go on sale through Ticketmaster on Friday, March 25th at 10:00 AM CDT, but Fifth Members can pick up theirs in a special presale starting on Tuesday, March 22 at 8:00 AM CDT. Log in for more details on how to pick up your tickets early.”
