Metallica is getting ready to kick off their massive North American tour, and they’ve just announced a special preview for fans that will be available next week. Here’s the official update from Metallica.com: “We’re coming down the home stretch before the North American WorldWired tour starts in Baltimore next week and we are beyond excited to see all of you out there on our first proper tour of this part of the world since 2009. To kick off the celebrations, we’re inviting you to get a sneak peek of what to expect this summer by checking out our rehearsal the night before the first show via the magic of streaming video on Facebook Live. In a little show very cleverly titled “Now That We’re Live” we’ll bring rehearsals on Tuesday, May 9th live to your computer, tablet, mobile device or any other way you reach the internet at 9:00 PM EDT.
Tune into Metallica.com or head over to our Facebook page to see a few songs and catch a glimpse of the all-new massive production hitting the road this summer. A few lucky Fifth Members will be able to experience it all in the flesh as we’re inviting Fan Club members to enter to win a chance to be in the house that night. Click here for more details.
If you do decide to check it out, you’ll also be able to donate on Facebook Live to our All Within My Hands Foundation, which supports a cross-section of national, local and Bay Area charities that the individual band members support, as well as music education programs and local food banks.
We’re just over a week away now and fired up!! See you out on the road!”
