Metallica coming to Camping World Stadium in Orlando
A day after teaming up with Lady Gaga to rip the Grammys, Metallica has announced they're coming to Florida.
The metal titans will bring their summer stadium tour to Camping World Stadium in Orlando on July 5, according to their website. It's one of two Florida dates for the band, along with a July 7 date at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium. Opening the shows are Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat. Tickets to the Orlando gig are $55.50 and up, and they go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. Click here for details.
Sadly, this means Tampa's out of luck for a concert on this leg of the tour, but Metallica does tend to stretch Orlando's not a bad drive. And considering there's no bigger name in hard rock, it's bound to be worth the trip.
