Metallica will stream the Arlington, Texas, dates of their “M72 World Tour” in cinemas worldwide this August

The metal men of Metallica premiered their new album, “72 Seasons,” in theaters worldwide Thursday (April 13) with their “Metallica: 72 Seasons – Global Premiere” worldwide listening party. Now, they’re already gearing up for another big cinema event.

Metallica’s “M72 World Tour” will reach the big screen as they stream their performance live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, in cinemas worldwide this summer. Specifically, the two-night event will play on Friday, August 18, and Sunday, August 20.

The showing, called “Metallica: M72 World Tour Live From Arlington, TX – A Two Night Event,” will feature the band playing two nights with two totally different setlists. That’s exactly how the band is doing their “M72 World Tour.” The setlist will feature songs coming from the group’s entire career, from their seminal 1983’s “Kill ‘Em All” to the just-released “72 Seasons.” Expect more than 30 songs across both nights. The tour and cinema event will also see Metallica performing in a new in-the-round stage design that brings their Snake Pit to center stage. That will give audience members a 360-degree view.

“We feel like we are a part of the Metallica family now that we are doing our third release together,” Kymberli Frueh, SVP programming and content acquisitions at Trafalgar Releasing, said in a statement. Frueh is referring to the “72 Seasons Global Premiere” and “S&M²” as the other two cinema events.

“Since Metallica is touring in very limited markets this year, we are so happy that we can extend that tour into cinemas across the globe,” Frueh added. “The cinemas create a virtual tour stop for fans in thousands of locations where Metallica isn’t touring this year. What better way to create a VIP experience with every seat in the cinema feeling as if you are in the front row of the concert.”

The ticket on-sale date for “Metallica: M72 World Tour Live From Arlington, TX – A Two Night Event” will be announced later, according to a statement. For more information on the cinema showings, head to
