Metallica will bring the European leg of their world tour to London's The O2 for two nights this October.



The 'Enter Sandman' rockers are currently on tour in support of their LP, 'Hardwired ... To Self Destruct', and will bring their ferocious live show to the arena on October 22 and October 24, followed by shows in Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham.

The heavy metal legends - James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo and Lars Ulrich - are giving away a free copy of the record with every ticket purchased through official ticketing sites.

Meanwhile, bassist Robert recently said he wants to play live in some different locations this year and after performing in the Antarctic his next dream is to play live in space, which he's hoping they'll do on their forthcoming world tour.

Robert said previously: "We're doing what we've been doing. We're celebrating the energy of the new music and working up the new songs, seeing what works.

"It's an exciting time. We feel there's great momentum. This album has been embraced by the world. We didn't expect... I mean, we love that to happen; I don't know that we expected all this. And it's something that is always exciting for us.

"We enjoy playing small shows, big shows, whatever. There's the energy of the visual production, and all that stuff starts to happen, so when you see it come to life, it's pretty exciting.

"We're gonna go to some really great places on this trip. Last tour, we went to Antarctica. And hopefully we'll get to the Moon this time. [Laughs] I don't know."
