Metallica Just Might Be Touring Australia In 2017


Welp, it seems former Soundwave ringleader AJ Maddah is still desperately grasping for any cheap shot at relevancy he can – it’s cool, though, because that often means hinting at high-profile tours we can all gather ’round to drool over. In this week’s episode: motherfucking Metallica. Yup.

Maddah hit his Twitter today with the not-so-cryptic bombshell, “START SAVING YOUR PEENNIES [sic] AUSTRALIA #Metallica 🙂 #2017”. Given that Metallica are set to hit the Asian circuit in January, an Australian tour could most certainly be on the cards for the first quarter of the new year.

And, for those holding doubts over Maddah’s leaking skills, the noted festival killer also spilled beans for Slipknot and Underoath tours recently – both of which ended up sprouting into legitimacy.

Metallica last toured Australia in 2013, when they headlined what is arguably the best lineup a Soundwave ever had. The icons dropped their latest studio offering, the two-disc Hardwired…To Self Destruct, earlier this month to critical acclaim. As expected, it shot right the fuck up to #1 on the ARIA charts.
