Metallica will be returning later this month for a series of drive-in concerts in North America.

The band will be partnering with Encore Drive-In Nights series to put on shows for those who are taking advantage of the classic drive-in outdoor theater trend in the U.S. And Canada. On August 29, their live concert will be screened across outdoor theaters.

The concert will not be a replay of one their old shows. They will be playing near the band’s home in Northern California. The show will be aired across drive-in movie theaters in North America and will include footage from the band’s career.

The official website description reads, “METALLICA will be the first rock band to be featured in the Encore Drive-In Nights series, with a full set airing at hundreds of drive-ins across the United States and Canada on Saturday, August 29. Shot especially for this one-night-only event, the band’s first show of 2020 will go down as one of the most unique and memorable METALLICA experiences of all time. The event will also include a special guest performance by Three Days Grace.”

Tickets are purchased per car rather than per person. This means that you and five friends can experience Metallica’s return to the stage for the cost of one ticket. You can buy tickets here.
