Want To See Metallica In Shanghai On August 13? Tickets Go On Sale Tomorrow Morning [UPDATE]


You may have already heard, but after several false starts — years of teasing — Metallica is finally, actually coming to China. As the band announced yesterday on its website:

It is so rare for us to be able to say that we are visiting a country for the very first time, so this is an extra special announcement for us. After over 31 years of traveling to almost all corners of the world for so many amazing, wild and thrilling adventures, we will finally be heading to China!! We’ll be hitting the stage in Shanghai at the Mercedes-Benz Arena on August 13.

August 13, 8 pm, Mercedes-Benz Arena. So the important question: how can you get tickets? Per Metallica’s website:

Tickets go on sale on June 7 at 10:00 AM local time. A limited of tickets are being held for Met Club members. Club Members should login to Metallica.com for more information on how to buy these tickets.

And if you’re not a Met Club member…

Ticket Order: 400-610-3721Piao.com.cn
English: 021-5150-9199SmartShanghai.com

That’s Shanghai reports that you can also purchase via Damai.cn, and that prices will be RMB480, 980, 1,280, 1,680.

However, when we called for more info, we were told that ticket prices have yet to be finalized. The operator asked us to call back tomorrow at 10 am.

Tomorrow, 10 am. If you’re looking for the cheap seats — or any seats, for that matter — we recommend calling at that time. Tickets will not last.

And if you do go, you might see local music celebrity Beijing Daze there. As the man puts it:

still debating whether this gig is worth the 2000 rmb for ticket + train to get there.
