Heavy metal stalwarts Metallica just kicked off it’s latest U.S. tour, which will bring them to Madison Square Garden three times starting next month.
The band will first play the Garden on Oct. 30, as part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25th anniversary bash.
Then they’re back on Nov. 14 and 15 for two sold out shows at the ‘world’s most famous arena.’ It’s their first return to the NY Metro area since the start of the year, when their tour included two shows at the Prudential Center in Jersey.

Metallica, touring behind their latest, Death Magnetic, kicked off the new leg of the tour in San Rafael, Cal., on Friday, and followed up with two sets in Nashville —including last night’s show, which got highmarks from Rolling Stone.
Rest assured, this band has aged, but they haven’t slowed down much. They simply put on a great show, and are at the stage of their Hall of Fame careers where the shows are virtual greatest hits revue. And there are always surprises, such as the out-of-left-field riff we told you about after the Prudential show on Feb. 1.
However you slice it, they’re still great live, and they won’t be around forever. So, get out and see them.
Here’s a rundown of their stops on the tour.
