Metallica, A7X, Volbeat Performing At New Minneapolis Stadium

The new home of the Minnesota Vikings is going to see some incredible action before the kickoff of the 2016 regular season thanks to Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat.

The three hard rock/metal bands have been tapped for a “one-night-only” show at the new U.S. Bank Stadium on August 20th.  With a capacity of 73,000 plus however many tickets are sold on the field, it’s pretty safe to say that this show is going to be absolutely massive.  Once you factor in that this is one of the few shows A7X is playing in 2016, expect these tickets to be snatched up quick and going for well over fact value on the secondary market.

Tickets go on sale to the general public March 25 at 10 AM local time with each band holding special pre-sales are their respective websites.
