This may just be the most important tour announcement of the year so far – Metallica have just announced a 2019 tour with Slipknot. The tour run consists of six shows in Australia and New Zealand this coming October. The announcement came earlier today (Mar. 7). Tickets for the tour go on sale 18th March.
This is going to be huge, and very metal – especially considering the final date is on Halloween. Better start making those travel plans now. Metallica have been actively touring the U.S. over the past few months, concluding the leg next week on 13th March in Grand Rapids, Mich.
Slipknot just recently announced their 2019 Knotfest Roadshow tour with Volbeat, Behemoth and Gojira. Their highly anticipated, yet-to-be-named album was also given an Aug. 9 release date. See dates for the Knotfest Roadshow here.

The proposed 'February 8 2008' release date is also stamped on the label & sleeve. These ultra rare test discs were produced in tiny numbers for sonic review & never intended for sale.
