Metallica will broadcast a snippet of their final tour rehearsal in a special, Now That We’re Live, set to stream May 9th at 9 p.m. ET on Facebook Live.
The band will perform four full tracks – including current single “Now That We’re Dead” – from M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland, where they’ll begin the North American leg of their WorldWired Tour the following night, May 10th. After the livestream, Now That We’re Live will be available to watch on demand through Metallica’s website and the band’s Facebook page.
Members of Metallica’s fan club, Fifth Member, can enter to win a chance to attend the rehearsal through the band’s website. During the livestream, fans will be able to donate to Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation, which raises money for an array of charities, including education programs and local food banks.
Metallica’s WorldWired Tour will extend through the summer and feature support from Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat, Gojira and Local H on select dates. The trek includes a headlining slot at Outside Lands in San Francisco before wrapping August 16th in Edmonton, Canada.
Metallica released their most recent album, Hardwired … to Self Destruct, last November.
