METALLICA's Santiago Concert Sells Out In Less Than Three Hours

It reportedly took less than three hours for METALLICA fans to snap up every seat at Santiago, Chile's 63,000-capacity Estadio Nacional ahead of the San Francisco Bay Area metal giants' April 15, 2020 performance.

The general sale began at 11:00 am on Thursday (August 22), and by 2:00 p.m., all tickets were sold out.

Earlier in the week, a special pre-sale for the concert was offered for customers of mobile carrier Entel, and all available stock ran out in less than 24 hours.

Support for METALLICA at Estadio Nacional will come from the Chilean group YAJAIRA and Michigan rockers GRETA VAN FLEET.

The summer 2019 leg of METALLICA's "WorldWired" tour grossed more than $70 million from 13 shows.

Music industry trade magazine Pollstar recently named METALLICA one of the top-earning hard rock and metal tours of the "2019 Midyear" reporting period, which covered the six-month range from November 22, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

The group's 21 North American "WorldWired" arena shows during the reporting period grossed a total of $41.7 million, good for an average per-show gross of $1.99 million.

The "WorldWired" tour has played more than 130 shows across the world since its 2016 kick-off.

METALLICA has been touring in support of its latest album, "Hardwired… To Self-Destruct", which came out in November 2016.
