Metallica and Slipknot — two generations of iconic heavy metal bands — will be touring together in Australia and New Zealand in 2019. At this time, five Australian shows and one New Zealand show are scheduled for October.
Before taking on the other side of the globe together, each group will be hitting the road hard. Metallica is currently winding down a North American leg of shows before heading to Europe in May. Earlier this week, Slipknot announced a "Knotfest Roadshow" summer tour.
