The official website and verified social media accounts of Metallica made a recent announcement today and announced the rescheduled dates of the upcoming European Tour which will be started on June 15, 2022.

You may remember that just like other musicians and bands in the rock and heavy metal scene, Metallica had to postpone/cancel most of their upcoming tours due to coronavirus measures. While the band managed to schedule the United States tour for this year, according to the official statement, they will make European Tour in 2022.

As Metallica announces the official tour dates, they also shared their excitement to see some of their musician friends at festivals like Mad Cool, Nos Alive, Firenze Rocks, Prague Rocks, Pinkpop, and Copenhell. The tour will begin at Copenhagen, Denmark on June 15, 2022, and the band will put an end to the tour at Lisbon, Portugal on July 8, 2022.

Metallica made this official announcement on its website:

“We have waited far too long to say these words – we’re getting back out there and are finally announcing our return to Europe in 2022! Needless to say, we cannot wait to see all of you once again as our European ’Tallica Family will finally have a chance to reunite in June and July of next year.

We can’t wait to once again take the stage as part of the time-honored tradition of summer music festivals and we’re excited to see some of our friends, both new and old, at Copenhell, Pinkpop, Firenze Rocks, Prague Rocks, Rock Werchter, Mad Cool, and NOS Alive.

Dates are listed below, and Fifth Members should be sure to check all the details in the Club News Story to find out when special pre-sales will be held. A few of the festivals are already on sale and we’re happy to join their party… info about when and where you can grab tickets is listed next to each show.
