Drummer Lars Ulrich, singer and guitarist James Hetfield, lead guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo have been selling tickets since 2019. Opening performances at Brazilian shows are on Ego Kill Talent.
In the 2022 tour, the band will perform in Porto Alegre, Sao Paulo (10/5 – Studio do Morumbi) and Belo Horizonte (12/5 – Brazil Studio Mineirao). On other visits to Brazil, Metallica had already performed in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.
