Heavy-metal legends Metallica have announced a surprise charity concert at Toronto's Opera House next Tuesday (Nov. 29). The intimate show (950 capacity) will celebrate the band's latest LP and 10th studio album, Hardwired...To Self-Destruct. Hardwired...to Self-Destruct is Metallica's first LP in eight years, following their 2008 effort, Death Magnetic.
The band has priced two separate sets of tickets for the performance. A special ticket pre-sale was made available to Metallica fan club members between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. today for $25 via Ticketmaster. A general on-sale limited to two tickets per person launched at 11 a.m. today as well. Tickets for the general public are priced at $100 each.
Fans who are unable to grab tickets for the on-sale can find tickets to see Metallica on the resale market via TicketIQ.
All proceeds to the show will go to The Daily Bread Food Bank, a charity dedicated to eliminating hunger in and around Toronto. The band will also set up collection bins to encourage fans to bring non-perishable food items to the shows for donation.
Metallica has played just a handful of major shows this year, including appearances at the Super Bowl pre-party, Global Citizens Festival, and the Bridge School Benefit show with Neil Young, Roger Waters & Dave Matthews. Below is a snapshot of the band's priciest headlining stops this year:
