Metallica announces only 2014 North American show at Heavy Montreal

Metallica has announced that they will perform their only North American show this summer at Heavy Montreal. The band is bringing their “Metallica By Request” show to the two-day Canadian festival that also features Slayer, Lamb of God, Anthrax, Exodus and Apocalyptica at Parc Jean-Drapeau August 9-10.

“Metallica By Request” gives fans who purchase tickets a chance to pick the set list. Each ticket holder will receive a code and a link to a site where they can vote on which 17 songs Metallica will perform at the festival. The band normally plays 18 songs per night, which leaves one slot open for them to pick a new song for fans to hear.

Weekend Passes for Heavy Montreal 2014 will go on sale on Friday, March 7th at noon via heavymontreal.com. Met Club members can login to get more details about a special presale. New this year, Gold Weekend Pass holders will have access to the Heavy Montreal terrace, a multi-level platform offering a premium view of the two main stages, with access to private washrooms and exclusive food & beverage stands.

Early Bird prices for General Admission Weekend Passes run $165 while Gold Weekend Pass tickets are $400 each. All taxes and fees are included in each ticket price.

Other bands performing include The Offspring, Three Days Grace, Dropkick Murphys, Fucked Up, Bad Religion and many more on three stages over two days. A fourth stage will be added this year in order to showcase more artists, including many local bands, and to maximize the festival experience for the fans. And, after a ton of success last year, the Heavy Mania wrestlers will return to Heavy Montreal this summer.

More bands, the August 8th lineup in the city and the daily lineup will be announced soon.

Metallica is currently in the studio writing songs for their next album, but are taking a “spiritual break” this spring and summer to take their “Metallica By Request” shows to South America and Europe.
