On Cyber Monday, Metallica announced a new song, album and worldwide tour. 

Metallica's latest album "72 Seasons" drops on April 14, 2023, and the first single "Lux Aeterna" was released Monday.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers are scheduled to headline the "M72 World Tour" at SoFi Stadium on Aug. 25 and 27, 2023. As if seeing the rock legends live wasn’t enough, this tour will be different as each night during the two-day stop will feature different sets and opening acts in each city.

Other stops include Detroit, Phoenix, and Chicago. 

For the Aug. 25 show, Pantera and Mammoth WVH will open, and for the Aug. 27 show, Five Finger Death Punch and Ice Nine Kills will open for Metallica. 

After their music was featured in the Netflix hit show "Stranger Things" in its most recent season, the tour is sure to attract the younger generation. 

Presale tickets are available Wednesday and two-day tickets will go on sale Friday. On Jan. 20. 2023, single-day tickets will become available.
