Metallica are to headline 2019's Slane Concert, as part of their WorldWired World Tour. Taking place in the historic grounds of Slane Castle, Co. Meath, the metal giants bring along with them special guests Ghost who will be playing their first ever Irish show. The Slane gig will take place on 8th June 2019.
The Slane show comes as part of Metallica’s summer 2019 European schedule. Kicking off May 1, 2019 at Lisbon’s Estadio Restelo, the 25 newly announced WorldWired shows across 20 countries include a good dozen cities not visited on those 2017-2018 legs of the tour—including Milan, Zürich, Dublin, Brussels (for the first time since 1988), Berlin, Moscow, Warsaw, Bucharest and Gothenburg, and first ever
appearances in Trondheim Norway, Hämeenlinna Finland and Tartu Estonia.
With this kind of itinerary, it’s natural that the Wherever I May Roam Black Ticket will be returning: one ticket allowing floor access to any Metallica show on the 2019 UK/Europe tour. From A(msterdam) to Z(urich) and all points between, Black Ticket holders need only choose the show(s) and make an online reservation no less than 48 hours before the gig. A limited number of 750 of these Black Tickets* will be available for 598 Euro, more info HERE.
As with most of Metallica’s WorldWired shows, every ticket purchased includes a choice of standard physical or standard digital copy of the band’s 10th and current album, 'Hardwired…To Self-Destruct'. And once again, all tickets will include a free MP3 download of the show(s) attended, mixed and mastered by the team behind 'Hardwired...To Self-Destruct'. The free full- show downloads can be obtained by scanning or entering the barcode from that show’s ticket stub at LiveMetallica.com/scan.
Enhanced experience options will also be returning in partnership with the team at CID Entertainment: Three options of special enhanced experiences, including premium tickets and amenities ranging from early access to the venue and the 'Memory Remains'; traveling museum to meeting members of the band. Visit CID Entertainment for full package details.
