There are a lot of rumors surrounding Metallica. French radio broadcaster Francis Zigot, who previously successfully leaked Metallica shows, now says he knows the band will be at Hellfest next year. Graspop takes place a week ago, and the Americans still have a chance on their agenda.
Metalheads are noting that popular Metallica tracks could be in the air at Graspop Metal Meeting 2024 in the summer of 2024. According to French radio broadcaster Francis Zigot, who has often leaked Metallica’s correct dates in the past, the band is said to be booked for Hellfest 2024 .
It started with this interesting Facebook post from Zégut:
Loire-Atlantique is a region in France where Hellfest is traditionally held, including next year. And if the tip above wasn’t clear enough, the screenshot below is. In a live chat, where forum visitor BMx shared a screenshot on the Festileaks Festival forum, Zégut confirmed in his response that he was indeed referring to Hellfest with his post. Given Zégut’s track record, you could actually write Metallica into Hellfest.
In the same letter, the Frenchman says he knows nothing about Graspop’s offer. But this is certainly not inconceivable. If we zoom in on the current situation Tour schedule By Metallica, two things immediately stand out:
- The band has an approximately three-week gap in their schedule between June 16 and July 5. Both Graspop (June 20-23) and Hellfest (June 27-30) are held at this hole. Elsewhere in the tour schedule, there are usually only two to five days between each concert.
- During the Rock Werchter weekend, Metallica will play twice in Poland (Friday 5th and Sunday 7th July). This appears to exclude the band from the main show at Rock Werchter. If there is indeed a Belgian date, Graspop bookings will be free in principle.
Add to that Zégut’s statements, and suddenly it seems quite possible that the biggest metal band in the world will finally perform at Graspop next year.
However, for now it remains just speculation. Who knows, it might end up being a separate concert on the Werchter site or elsewhere in Belgium. Finally, it’s also possible that Metallica will skip the Benelux concert next summer. For now, we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
M72 World Tour
New shows in the Netherlands are also a possibility with this rumour. sequel M72 World Tour It promises to be another spectacle. During the tour, the Americans will play twice in each city, one There is no repeat of the weekend. Opening hours also vary daily. Opening for various groups throughout the tour: Architects, Mammoth WVH, Five Finger Death Punch, Ice Nine Kills, Pantera, Volbeat and Greta Van Fleet. Due to the temporary cancellation of Five Finger Death Punch, Floor Janssen and Epica also played a support role earlier in the tour.
