MALTA, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Metallica is the latest musical act to adapt their stage show to a drive-in concert format. The band takes the stage for the first time since autumn with a full set on August 29 at hundreds of drive-in and outdoor theaters.

Pre-sale tickets for official members of Metallica’s Fifth Member fan club go on sale on August 12. The general sale starts August 14, and Metallica’s new album, S&M2, will be included digitally with each ticket purchase. Each ticket is $115 and good for up to six people in a single car.

They’ll record the performance specifically for the one-night-only engagement, featuring material from throughout their career.

Theaters hosting the concert will follow guidelines and mandates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state and local governments. Staff will wear personal protective equipment, ensure 6 feet between cars, and limit bathroom capacity. The show will also use contactless payment and ticketing.
