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. The DVD packaging features work of legendary rock photographer Ross Halfin (Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, The Who, Iron Maiden).

To promote this launch, the first 5,000 people to buy tickets for Metallica's March 10, 2010 concert in Bogot, Columbia will have access to the first edition of the DVD.

    +1 to Wolves. I have but one concern. If they do come to Britain, it may coincide with my GCSE's. Please be after the 1st half of June...

    Seems like Metallica loves Norway. This will be 4th time in a row they'll play here in Norway since 2007. Not sure if I'll go tho. I saw them now in the end of July and in 2007.. There's a lot of others bands I want to experience too, and I don't sht money either.

    aw dammit guys. First you release the Live from Rome (or was it Paris?) DVD. Now you're planning to do the same in Mexico. You know, it wouldn't hurt you to do the same for an English speaking audience. I'd love to get a live show DVD of metallica, i know others would too. Come to think of it, what was the last live english (NTSC) DVD that these guys released? Cause i sure as hell can't remember.

    These are only the first dates people. They'll probably schedule more. And I bet they'll be coming to Portugal once again. Four years in a row for such a small country. What a waste.
