As revealed on rushonrock last week those mighty metal masters Metallica are playing Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on March 3 and the announcement will be made official tomorrow.

But if you can’t wait until then for the details that matter… tix will cost £40 and go on sale to official fan club members from Tuesday October 21. There will be NO sales from the Arena box office until Friday October 24.

The show will be staged in the round with standing tix available for the full Arena floor – meaning this will be one of the biggest ever concerts staged in Newcastle. See you there!
