Metallica will play two special shows in Quebec City, Canada in September


Metallica will play two special shows in Quebec City, Canada in September.


The band said in a statement: "We're excited to be heading back to Canada this fall for what promises to be a very unique historical pair of shows as we have been invited to usher out the legendary Colisée Pepsi and welcome the brand new Centre Videotron all in a three-day period! On September 14th, we'll be taking the stage for the final event held at the longtime mainstay Colisée Pepsi, the classic hockey arena that made its debut in 1949. Our first appearance there was in 1989 and since then we've played seven shows in the arena, including the two shows filmed for the 'Quebec Magnetic' DVD release. Two days later, on September 16th, we'll open the doors to the brand new Centre Vidéotron for the first event to ever be held there. How cool is that?!
Always one of our favorite places to visit, Quebec City also has a long history of being the home to some of the most rabid 'TALLICA fans anywhere. It only seems fitting that we share this special passing of the torch with you! Each show will be a completely different experience right down to where we set up the stage. Look for one night with the classic end stage, the other in the round, different set lists and even different opening bands . . . two totally different MET experiences in one 48-hour period!
Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 24th at noon local time. Fan club members should log in for details about a pre-sale for them starting this Wednesday."
