Metallica live in LA
In what should be great news for headbangers south of the border, Metallica has just announced newly added dates to their upcoming world tour, including two stops in Mexico City, which the band promises will be twice the size of last year’s effort.
"After years in the making, we are beyond excited to finally unveil the all new, out of control, massive stage and Metalli-show to some of our most rabid fans in the world with two shows in Mexico City at Sports Palace on August 1 and 2, 2012,” wrote the band through their official website.
"When we last visited Mexico City in June of 2009, those three sold out nights with over 150,000 of our craziest friends at Foro Sol Stadium were some of the most memorable, over the top, insane shows we have ever played.
"Now we'll be back with a brand new show that features your favorite iconic elements spanning our entire 30 year touring career all on a massive stage that is twice the size of the World Magnetic set up... we think it's something that needs to be seen to believed!!”
Metallica will be stopping by our neighbors down under August 1st and 2nd at the Mexico Sports Palace in Mexico City.
