Metallica is fresh off the hugely hyped Grammy performance with Lady Gaga. They also used the attention to announce a huge world tour with many Canadian dates!
Metallica hung with ABC Nightline to talk about how their band’s longevity, their North American stadium tour, and how their Grammy collaboration with Lady Gaga came about.
Drummer Lars Ulrich tells the story. “Gaga has been sorta a self professed metal head and lifelong Metallica fan. We were at dinner six weeks ago, four weeks ago and I said, ‘we’re going the Grammys, would like to join?’ And she said ‘yes.'”
Metallica will be hitting a bunch of stadiums in Canada. Check out these dates and look out for pre-sale codes on Thursday or winning tix from the radio.
