Metallica Comes to Vancouver for 3D Concert

By Vancity Buzz Staff | 7:47 am PST, Tue May 22, 2012 | Speak Up

It was announced today Metallica will stop at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena on Friday, August 24th. Ticket will go on sale Friday, May 25th at 10AM. Unlike most concerts, fans will be part of the show. They’ll be filming in 3D for the upcoming Metallica movie. That’s correct they chose our fair city to showcase to the rest of the rock world.

Metallica will perform their catalogue of hits amidst a mind-blowing 360-degree stage that needs to be seen to be believed.  This 140×50-foot stage will feature colossal components and striking visual elements spanning Metallica’s entire 30-year career. “Our rabid Canadian fans will love this sick as fuck, over the top, out of control stage that will be the cornerstone of our touring escapades for the next years to come,” said Metallica’s Lars Ulrich.  “Don’t be scared boys and girls, this is going next level.”

From Metallica.com:

Earlier today we announced that our gigantic, massive brand new Metalli-show will head north following a sold out run in Mexico City, with the first stop in Edmonton, AB. We’re back with another one 75 minutes later, this time in Vancouver, BC, on August 24 at Rogers Arena. And there is a TWIST – you’ll be a part of the show!! That’s right, we will be filming this show all in 3D for… you guessed it, the upcoming Metallica 3D movie that we’ve mentioned on and off a few times this year. We couldn’t think of a better place than Vancouver to end our three week new stage run with cameras capturing it all, so bring your nuttiest, craziest Metalli-self to the show, be a part of movie history, and show the rest of the world how much Vancouver rocks.

Tickets for the Vancouver show also go on sale this Friday, May 25 at 10:00 AM local time with a Live Nation pre-sale on Thursday, May 24 from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM. Clubbers – your pre-sale starts on Wednesday, May 23, so log in now for all the details.

For those of you wondering what lies ahead, the emphasis here is on “end of our three week new stage run” as these are indeed the last dates that we are announcing for summer of 2012.
