It's GREAT To Be The Kings - METALLICA Adds SIXTH Mexico City Show!
As we told you before, the Kings of Thrash Metal, Metallica, will return to Mexico a month after the Orion Music + More weekend (scheduled to take place in Atlantic City, New Jersey on June 23rd and June 24th). The band will be unveiling their NEW stage: a 140x50-foot stage that features colossal components and striking visual elements spanning Metallica's 30-year career.
In a historical twist of events, METALLICA has been forced to add a sixth Mexico City show after their five previous shows sold out in a matter of minutes! Heavy Metal's biggest band, will be performing at the Sports Palace in Mexico City on August 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, and 9.
Tickets for the sixth show will go on sale on Thursday, March 29 at 11 a.m. CST at TicketMaster.mx.
"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.
"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!!!
"Tickets go on sale on Saturday, March 24 at 11:00 AM at Ticketmaster.mx. There will be a Banamex pre-sale starting Thursday, March 22 at 11:00 AM, ending Friday March 23 at 8:00 PM.

"Mexico will be the first to see what will be the cornerstone of our touring escapades for years to come. Don't be scared boys and girls, this is going next level and we are just getting started!"
