Earlier this week, Metallica’s website had a mysterious countdown clock running. It should also be pointed out that the web address was metallicaxx.com.

It was widely speculated that the XX in the address, being the Roman numeral for “twenty” either meant they were going to announce a series of festival dates they’ll be playing in 2020; or that for the 20th anniversary (November 23) of their S&M live album, they’d be releasing S&M² from the live shows they did recently.

As 93X staffers sat with bated breath watching the clock tick down to zero, there was brief confusion when nothing happened. Commence the repeated slamming of the F5 key on the keyboard.

But now, all has been revealed!

In 2020, they will be playing a series of festival shows. 5 different festivals, two different sets each weekend, None of the festivals are anywhere close to the Twin Cities, but complete details can be found at MetallicaXX.com.
