Metallica to play first 2020 concert for ‘Encore Drive-In’ series
Metallica won’t let a pandemic make it fade to black.
The heavy metal band announced Monday that it will be hitting the stage for the first time this year in a one-night performance airing exclusively at drive-in theaters Aug. 29.
The rock legends will perform a full set to an empty theater, but the performance will be broadcast across the US and Canada as part of the Encore Drive-In Nights series.
Other musical heavyweights like Blake Shelton, 44, and Gwen Stefani, 50, already participated in the series last month.
“As many of you know, we’ve not played together in quite some time — actually since the ‘S&M2′ concerts last September,” drummer Lars Ulrich, 56, said in a video posted on Twitter and Instagram. “But that’s all changing now as we’re gearing up to record a live show especially for you, just for you.”
The band will film the show at a secret location close to their headquarters in northern California.
The full-length concert will also feature found footage of Metallica from throughout its four decades of making music. Canadian rock band Three Days Grace will open for Metallica.
