Metallica and Slipknot reveal 2019 Australian tour dates

It's about to get heavy.

After six years, metal legends Metallica will be returning Down Under as part of their Worldwired Tour.

Metallica have been touring since 2016, which is exhausting even to think about, and their Aussie circuit will be the first time the metal outfit have played stadiums here. To make it even more of a treat, Slipknot will be joining Metallica for every show.

This marathon tour is all in celebration of their tenth studio album Hardwired...To Self Destruct. From the looks of their Facebook page, it appears they haven't grown tired of selling out arenas yet.

Check out the tour dates for Metallica below:

Thursday October 17, Optus Stadium, Perth

Sunday October 20, Adelaide Oval, Adelaide

Tuesday October 22, Marvel Stadium, Melbourne

Saturday October 26, ANZ Stadium, Sydney

Tuesday October 29, QSAC, Brisbane

Ticket's for Metallica's Aussie tour go on sale Monday March 18 via Live Nation. Pre-sale begins on Tuesday March 12.
