Metallica announce summer 2014 By Request European dates


Story by Jack Foley

METALLICA HAVE announced that they will bring their explosive live show to fans throughout Europe next summer with an All Request show, a first for the multi-platinum, award-winning band.

As a special tribute to their fans, the band will introduce ‘Metallica By Request’, the ultimate interactive Metallica concert experience.

Fans who purchase tickets online to these European dates will be invited to vote on the set list Metallica will play at their show – giving them the chance to help build their dream set list from 30-plus years of Metallica’s material and close to 140 recorded songs to date.

Metallica’s traditional 18-song set will include the 17 top voted songs and as the band did not want to be left out of the fun, their vote for the 18th slot goes to adding a brand new song!

Fans will be able to visit to see what songs fellow fans are voting for and the results of their specific shows.

Lars Ulrich commented: “We are once again psyched to break free of the four walls of the studio to get energized by our devoted European friends for a couple of weeks next May and June.

“On top of that, the fact that all our nutty fans will pick the songs we play should be some next level fun and take a big load off my shoulders as the guy who usually writes the set list!”

The first announced show will take place in Hamburg, Germany on June 4 with additional dates announced in Nuremberg, Germany on June 6 and Nürburgring, Germany on June 8, 2014.

Tickets for the Nuremberg and Nürburgring dates will go on sale on Wednesday, November 27.

Tickets for the Hamburg date will go on-sale on Friday, November 29 at 10am CET.

Stay tuned for additional European dates to be announced next week and visit for more details on the voting process.
