Metallica Drive-in Concert: Presale Details, Theaters Near Me and How to Get Tickets

Metallica will appear in the Encore Drive-In Night series. But how can you get your hands on tickets?

In a statement on its website, the band says that it has got together for the first time in almost a year to record a concert for its fans to watch at their local theater. Screening on August 29, 2020, the show will be at hundreds of drive-in and outdoor theaters across the U.S. and Canada.

"We've been rehearsing at HQ for a show that will be shot specially for the drive-ins at a location nearby later this week and then we'll pass it off to our award-winning production team to then be edited and mixed at the highest standards possible to be beamed into your cars from the big screen," the band said in a statement.

How to buy tickets

According to the website, if you are part of The Fifth Member then pre-sale starts on August 12, 2020, 12:00 p.m. local time on the Ticket Master website. Fifth Members can also check their e-mail or click here for more details.

The general on-sale will begin on August 14, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. local time. Every ticket purchase—which admits one carload of up to six people—will include four mp3 digital downloads of the upcoming release of S&M2.

The exclusive concert will adhere to guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as all state and local public health mandates. Encore Drive-In Nights have partnered with leading health experts to establish procedures for staff and fans, so fans can feel safe when watching their favorite rockstars.
