Artists are offering all sorts of ticket bundles and promotional packages these days, but the North American tour Metallica announced yesterday actually comes with a special feature fairly unique addition to the touring landscape.
For the first time, the metal legends are offering a flat-rate price that allows purchasers to attend as many shows on their 34-date itinerary as possible. It’s $598, so it’s not cheap, but for fans looking to follow Metallica around the continent Grateful Dead-style, it’s a little monetary relief for the trek ahead (Metal Injection points out you’d have to attend at least three shows to make it worth it). There are only going to be 250 of these “Wherever I May Roam Black Tickets,” and they'll go on sale with the rest of the tour later this week (Friday, March 2 to the general public after several pre-sales).
This leg of the of the WorldWired arena tour focuses on markets Metallica missed last year, so it features plenty of less-traveled locales Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and both Dakotas. For a diehard living somewhere in the Great Plains, maybe this is your lucky day. They're all floor tickets, and the only other stipulation is you'd have to notify the venue at least 48 hours in advance of every date you attend.
