Metallica To Live Stream Edmonton Concert

Canada will be in the global spotlight on Wednesday night when Metallica takes the stage at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.

The band announced Tuesday that they will stream the final show of the North American leg of the WorldWired tour.

“What a summer!! Thank you to some of the craziest, most passionate, intense avid fans on the planet!! This has been another memorable and special summer run for us seeing so many new faces along with lots of old friends as you welcomed us back for our first tour of North America in over eight years,” read a statement from Metallica.

“As we near the end, we want to share one more evening with all of you by streaming the final night of the WorldWired North American tour live, this Wednesday, August 16th, from Edmonton.”

The concert will begin at approximately 8:45 pm local time (10:45 pm ET) at webcast.livemetallica.com and on the MetallicaTV YouTube channel.

The North American leg of the WorldWired tour, in support of the band’s 10th studio album Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, kicked off in Baltimore in May. It included stops in Quebec City, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.

Metallica starts the European leg of the tour in Copenhagen on Sept. 2 and will wrap it up next May in Finland.
