The speculation has been confirmed; Metallica is heading to El Paso.

After hinting over the weekend that the legendary hard rock band would be announcing another round of U.S. tour dates and that El Paso would be one of its stops, the UTEP Office of Special Events officially confirmed social media suspicions today.

But it will be a while, metal fans. Like a year from now.

Metallica will perform at the Don Haskins Center on Thursday, February 28, 2019. Tickets will cost between $58.25 and $128.25 plus taxes and fees and will go on sale to the general public Friday morning (3/2) at 10 a.m. at the Don Haskins Center Box Office and through Ticketmaster.

The iconic rockers are expected to come armed with a career-spanning setlist that will be performed on a 360-degree stage setup.

Metallica’s last show in El Paso was on January 31, 1992.
