Metallica have postponed their South American tour due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The trek was initially scheduled for this past spring and pushed to December. As concerts remain uncertain and new COVID-19 cases continue to climb, the group hope to reschedule to tour for sometime in late 2021.


Read the band’s statement below:

It is with a heavy heart that we’re back in this space seven months later to announce that our South American tour dates scheduled for December of this year are once again being postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We’re working closely with our local promoter partners to reschedule these shows for hopefully late 2021 and will have an update for you soon.

Hang on to your tickets as they will be honored for the new dates; where applicable, refund information is below and we encourage you to visit the website or location where you purchased your tickets for additional updates.

We wish you, your families, and loved ones good health during these trying times. We cannot wait to spend time in person with our extended Metallica family when it’s safe to all be together again!”
