Metallica's official web site has been updated with the following message:
"'Europe??' You're thinking, 'weren't you guys just talking about Latin America a minute ago?' Well, yes, but we thought we would mix it up a little here and jump ahead to April to tell you about some shows happening then. In our effort to get the info out to you as soon as the dates are officially confirmed, here are three more for you:
April 13 - Oslo, Norway - Telenor Arena April 24 - Moscow, Russia - Olimpiski Arena April 25 - Moscow, Russia - Olimpiski Arena
"So keep watching here we'll be back several times during the next week with more European and Latin American dates. We're looking forward to visiting our friends all over the world!"
Metallica recently announced an early 2010 tour of South and Central America, with the band visiting two cities Panama City and San Jose, Costa Rica that it has never played before. The group will also hit Lima, Peru, for what promoters are expecting to be the biggest musical event ever staged in Peruvian history.
The Lima show takes place on January 19, with more South American dates expected to be announced soon.
According to El Espectador, Universal Music in Mexico has set a November 30 release date for Metallica's "Orgullo, Pasin Y Gloria - Tres Noches En La Ciudad De Mxico" (Pride, Passion And Glory Three Nights In Mexico City) DVD, recorded on June 4, 6 and 7 of this year at Foro Sol, Ciudad de Mxico.
