Metallica to hold drive-in concert

Metallica have announced plans to record a new and socially distanced concert that will be broadcast at drive-in movie theaters across North America on August 29. The company's two prior pandemic-era presentations featured Garth Brooks in June and Blake Shelton in July.

Metallica are the latest band to embrace the drive-in concert trend, as the group have just announced a special event as part of the "Encore Drive-In Nights" concert series.

The metal titans will be performing - and recording - their first live gig of 2020 near their California headquarters in the coming days, with the all-new set being shown for one night only at drive-in theatres across America and Canada later this month.

Ticket prices were not immediately available but were expected to be in line with the $115-per-carload pricing for the recent Shelton one-nighter. Tickets will cost $115 per vehicle, with up to six people allowed per auto. Pre-sale tickets, available to Metallica's Fifth Member fan club, will go on sale August 12.

For more information about tickets and the complete list of drive-ins that will be screening the show, visit the Encore Drive-in Nights website.

Three Days Grace will serve as the opening act for Metallica's August 29 show, for which tickets will go on sale August 14.
