Metallica - 72 Seasons / World Tour 2023-2024

Yes, you read that correctly... we have completed recording at HQ, and our 12th studio album is coming your way! It’s been six years since Hardwired…To Self Destruct, so we think it’s about time for some new music. With 12 tracks totaling over 77 minutes, 72 Seasons hits all the places you can consume music on Friday, April 14, 2023.

Produced by Greg Fidelman, along with James and Lars, 72 Seasons is available for pre-order now on CD, 2LP 140g black vinyl, two different colored vinyl variations, and digitally in the Met Store. Every pre-order will receive a digital instant grat track of the first song we are releasing, “Lux Æterna,” and you can check out the brand new video, one of the coolest we’ve ever made, on our YouTube channel. Directed by Tim Saccenti, we recently traveled to Los Angeles to capture our performance using some crazy cutting-edge technology.

The album package was once again conceived and art directed by our good friend, acclaimed designer David Turner, and his team. David, who won a Grammy for his work on Death Magnetic, is the man behind the look and feel of all of our recent releases, including Through The Never, S&M2, and Hardwired.

“Is there a special meaning to the title?” you ask. James explains it best: “72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves. The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”

The complete track listing for 72 Seasons is:

72 Seasons
Shadows Follow
Screaming Suicide
Sleepwalk My Life Away
You Must Burn!
Lux Æterna
Crown of Barbed Wire
Chasing Light
If Darkness Had a Son
Too Far Gone?
Room of Mirrors
Inamorata

But wait, there’s more! You know us... we can’t release an album without going on the road, so we’re super excited also to announce the M72 Tour today. Forty-six unique shows in 22 cities around the world... there’s so much to tell you about that we have a whole separate section of the site for you to look at, so head on over here for more info about what’s in store for 2023 and 2024. Check it out now... pre-sales begin on Wednesday, November 30!

https://www.metallica.com/news/2022-...2-seasons.html




We told you about our new album 72 Seasons, so what’s next now that we’ve escaped the studio? Hit the road, of course! You want a tour, we’ve got a tour... how about two full years worth of shows?!?!

Over the past few years, we have been so inspired by the dedication and family/community vibe of the fans who traveled to San Francisco for our recent weekend celebrations, first in 2019 with the two S&M2 shows, followed by last year’s 40th Anniversary shows. On top of that, we had a blast being a part of the 2021 Wimmer Festivals when we played two nights in one city, each with a totally different setlist. With all of that in mind, the M72 tour was born!

Starting in April of 2023, we’ll be visiting 22 different cities around the world and playing two nights in each city, with each “No Repeat Weekend” show a completely unique experience: Two totally different set lists with two different bands opening the show each night! Purchase a two-day ticket, and you won’t see the same song twice for a total of over 30 songs spanning our 40+ years of being lucky enough to make music. Most of the shows (sorry, not all - we tried!) will be on Fridays and Sundays, so we’ll be sure to have lots of extracurricular events for you to hang with fellow Metallica fans at before the shows kick-off and on the Saturday night in between.

Presented worldwide by Liquid Death and Blackened American Whiskey (in North America only), and brought to you by our friends at Live Nation, the M72 tour also launches a completely different look for us in stadiums – we’ll be in the round in the middle of the field. On top of that, the Snake Pit has been relocated to the center of the stage so that fans there will have a complete 360 view of the show. Each weekend offers a variety of Enhanced Experiences, ranging from access to a meet and greet, production and stage tour, food and beverage in the “Black Box” lounge to early entry into the venue and the aforementioned Snake Pit. The very popular “Black Laminate” is back, now known as the “I Disappear Ticket,” and is the ultimate pass for the fan who wants to run away with us for multiple weekends. Grab one of these and attend every show on your continent or in the world! For more information about Enhanced Experiences and I Disappear Tickets, visit wearesuper.co/metallica.

In keeping with the theme of two completely unique shows each weekend, we’re excited to share the stage with different bands each night, including some we have traveled with before and new friends who are joining us for the first time. Signing up for the entire adventure with us are Five Finger Death Punch, Ice Nine Kills, and MammothWVH, and some of you will see Pantera, Architects, Greta Van Fleet, or Volbeat, depending on the shows you attend. All the details are in the listing of dates below and on the individual show pages.

Two-day discounted tickets will be on sale Friday, December 2, for all shows. Fan Club presales start early on Wednesday, November 30, with various other presales beginning later that day and throughout the week. To request your Fan Club presale code, visit metallica.com/presale-code. If you cannot join us for the entire weekend, single-day tickets will be available starting January 20, 2023.

A portion of proceeds from every ticket sold will go to the band’s All Within My Hands foundation. Founded in 2017, AWMH’s efforts to assist and enrich the lives of members of the communities who have supported the band have raised nearly $13 million – providing $5.9 million in grants to career and technical education programs in the US, over $2.5 million to combat food insecurity, and more than $3.2 million to disaster relief efforts worldwide.

We cannot wait to embark on this new adventure, play some new music, and spend our weekends in ’23 and ’24 with YOU!

That is a very cool touring concept. I personally couldn't do two consecutive stadium shows, but for those who could, that sounds amazing.

Just the vinyl, if that, for me. Concerts are way too cost-prohibitive now. Can't justify the expense and I hear that SoFi Stadium sucks for music shows due to lousy acoustics. It's a sports arena, not a concert hall. Anyways.

Re: Metallica - 72 Seasons / World Tour 2023-2024

with two shows, the ticket prices will be quite high. Looking at the lower bowl at Soldier field, their reserved seat package is around $600, early entry GA on the floor will be around $500. Not sure I can swing a pair of tickets right now. I'm getting ready to get a ticket on the 70k Tons of Metal cruise and that'll be over $1400.

Well I knew the Pantera tickets would be expensive, but lumping them with Metallica is going to shot these through the roof. I'm out, I refuse to spend over $100 for such a small package. Also, what the hell is up with the Day 2 openers haha.

I dig the new song. I can't wait for the complaints from the "fans" because it doesn't sound like Master Of Puppets II.

Just came back to say, this new song is pretty good. Fast, short, and to the point. Hopefully the album follows the same path, could be really fun.

I'm digging the new song. Hope the rest of the album sounds just as good but I'm betting this is going to be Hardwired 2.0. That's not a bad thing per say but there was a little too much filler in that album.

Murder One

The rest of album is perfect.

Cool concept for a show.

I'll try to score tickets for Chicago, with St Louis and Arlington as backups. (Holy shit! That's 2024? Two years away?)

I think we'll try to go for the Chicago show so we can do some sightseeing on the Saturday between shows. Been a long time since I've been to the Field Museum and Shedd Aquarium.

Gotta be sure to get our hotel rooms early, and we'll probably have to Uber since the traffic in Chicago is absolutely nuts. Probably cost an arm and a leg, but it will be a fun vacation.

I would add Dream No More. I just could never get into that song.

New single reminds me of Hit the Lights with the riff.

Re: Metallica - 72 Seasons / World Tour 2023-2024

Picked up tickets to Phoenix. $800 for 2 tickets to each show, 1st level, center section, row 23. $200 each for two completely different sets and this version of Pantera is good enough for me. I saw Pantera back in 2001 not long before they broke up, and then each of the Abbot bros subsequent bands. My wife has never seen any of them, so at least she'll get to see 1/2 of Pantera live. Metallica has never disappointed any of the times I've seen them. I'm a little skeptical of the center stage thing, as well as having seats, but my wife and I are short and getting a bit older with aching body parts.

I haven't heard the new song yet, and will likely wait until the full album is put out.

I made my own version Hardwired. It is the only Metallica album where I had to make my own edit. Hopefully I won't have to do the same for the new one.

Got my tickets for sweet home Chicago!

Nosebleed, but after fees added in I only paid $125 total for two nights ($62.50/night).

No way in hell Lars can play that song live anywhere resembling the studio track.

Couldn’t get tickets yesterday during fifth member sale. Click to buy, error, then refresh with nothing in cart. Over and over.

Finally during platinum presale and 1700 bucks later , got tickets for Detroit.
