Metallica have announced that they will be joined by Greta Van Fleet for their sell-out South American tour dates.
The announcement comes as Metallica extend their hugely successful ‘WorldWired’ tour which will see the group tour with the likes of Ghost and Bokassa and Slipknot in the earlier shows.
When arriving in South America, the band will introduce the fast-rising Greta Van Fleet Santiago, Sao Paulo and more. “As the WorldWired tour hits the last leg in Europe, there are still so many places left to visit; South America, you’re up first in 2020!” the band wrote on their website.
Metallica added: “The last time we had the pleasure was in 2017 as part of the Lollapalooza festival and now it’s time to come back with the full-on stadium experience (as seen in N. America and Europe) for six headlining shows including two Brazilian cities we have never played in—Belo Horizonte and Curitiba. Opening the shows will be recent Grammy winners Greta Van Fleet!”
