Metallica to Host a Global 72 Seasons Listening Party Ahead of Release at Local Movie Theaters

Metal Sucks

The release of a new Metallica record is always a major event and the upcoming drop of 72 Seasons is proving to be no exception. And while we’ve already got two singles under our belts, fans will soon be able to hear the entire thing before its release on April 14.

Just as they’d done with S&M2, Metallica is teaming up with movie theaters around the globe to simultaneously beam the band’s 11th studio album out to fans. Along with the 12 songs on the tracklist, the listening party will include exclusive interviews with the band, as well as “a few surprises on the night that you won’t want to miss.”

Kymberli Frueh of Trafalgar Releasing, the company that Metallica’s tapped in the past to handle similar past events, said the company was excited to once again connect fans to the band.

“This is a monumental opportunity for Metallica fans to be the first to hear the new album. We are thrilled to be a part of this historical global moment—connecting Metallica with their fans once again.”

Tickets for the listening party will go on sale on Thursday, March 2. For more information, as well as a listing of participating movie theaters, be sure to head over to the event page.

Following the release of 72 Seasons, Metallica will embark on a massive tour schedule that will take place over multiple legs between 2023 and 2024. The tour features a special two-night engagement in each city listed, with the band opting to play completely different sets each night. Even the support acts will change, going from Pantera and Mammoth WVH on the first night and Ice Nine Kills and Five Finger Death Punch on the second night. If you want to try to catch the spectacle live and you’ve got enough money to spend, check out the list of dates below:
