Metallica Announces Pop-Up Stores to Go Along With Summer Stadium Tour
After breaking the news of The WorldWired tour for Hardwired...To Self Destruct, Metallica revealed another huge announcement today (May 8) for their very own special pop-up store. The store will go along with the summer stadium tour that is set to feature Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat, and Gojira.
Pop-up stores have become quite the fad amongst artists -- particularly pop acts such as Justin Bieber -- but are now making headway into the metal and hard rock scene with bands like Guns N’ Roses, who jumped on the bandwagon when they opened up a Manhattan-based store during their MetLife Stadium concert.
To many fans surprise and delight, Metallica will be on board with this music phenomenon by introducing their own chain of pop-up stores that will follow along the course of their tour to fill your Metallica merch needs and desires. To gain the fullest Metallica experience, the pop-up store series will begin with a Manhattan location, stationed at address 96 Spring Street, right before their MetLife Stadium gig on Sunday, May 14.
Current dates & times for the New York store:
May 12 – 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.
May 13 – 10 p.m.
May 14 – 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
