Metal legends Metallica are scheduled to rock Chicago‘s Soldier Field for two nights in 2024 in support of their new album 72 Seasons.

The band released dates for its M72 World Tour on Monday, which kicks off next April in Amsterdam, according to a statement from the band.

Metallica’s tour will feature a two-night stop in all 22 cities on the schedule, and set lists and support lineups for both nights will be completely different, the band said.

“Starting in April of 2023, we’ll be visiting 22 different cities around the world and playing two nights in each city, with each “No Repeat Weekend” show a completely unique experience: Two totally different set lists with two different bands opening the show each night,” the band said in the statement. “Purchase a two-day ticket, and you won’t see the same song twice for a total of over 30 songs spanning our 40+ years of being lucky enough to make music.”

Metallica will perform at Soldier Field in Chicago on August 9 and August 11 of 2024. Two-night discounted tickets will go on sale December 2 for all shows, and fan club pre-sales begin November 30. Single-day tickets will be available beginning January 20, according to the statement.

The M72 tour will feature an in-the-round stage design that relocates the Metallica Snake Pit to center stage, so fans have a 360-degree view of the performance.

Pantera and Mammoth WVH are scheduled to open for Metallica’s first show in each city in North America while Five Finger Death Punch and Ice Nine Kills will be the support acts during the second night.

Metallica last performed in the Windy City in July during the first day of Lollapalooza.
