Metallica at Times Union Center

the band Metallica

Metallica is set to play the Times Union Center October 29. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 2 -- they're $65 and up.* (There are also various pre-sales this week.)

The concert will also include a "Light It Up pre-show party" with comedian Jim Breuer, "featuring great tunes, comedy, giveaways and much more."

Metallica first started in 1981. It released its 10th studio album -- Hardwired... to Self-Destruct -- in November 2016, and this show is part of the ongoing tour in support of that album.

* Tangental bit: That is just about the highest starting ticket price around here that we can remember. (The string of sold-out Garth Brooks shows last year also started at $65, and the Chainsmokers at the TU Center last year started at $60.50.) Metallica had the fifth-highest grossing tour of 2017 -- $152.8 million on almost 1.6 million tickets sold -- according to Pollstar.
