Metallica schedules 2022 European festival tour


Metallica will be returning to the European festival circuit next summer.

The metal legends have announced a tour of the continent for 2022, including stops at the Pinkpop, Rock Werchter, Mad Cool and NOS Alive festivals.

“We have waited far too long to say these words — we’re getting back out there and are finally announcing our return to Europe in 2022!” Metallica says. “Needless to say, we cannot wait to see all of you once again as our European ‘Tallica Family will finally have a chance to reunite in June and July of next year.”
