After playing 26 stadiums across the US and Canada this summer, Metallica have announced they’re live streaming the final show this evening.

The gig at the 56,000 capacity Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, Canada will be streamed in its entirety on the band’s official website and YouTube channel at approximately 8.45pm local time.

UK fans will either have to stay up late or set their alarms early, as it kicks off at 3.45am British Summer Time tomorrow morning (Thursday 17th August).

Announcing the stream, Metallica wrote: “What a summer!! Thank you to some of the craziest, most passionate, intense avid fans on the planet!!

“This has been another memorable and special summer run for us seeing so many new faces along with lots of old friends as you welcomed us back for our first tour of North America in over eight years.

“As we near the end, we want to share one more evening with all of you by streaming the final night of the WorldWired North American stadium tour live, this Wednesday, August 16th, from Edmonton.

“Tune in as we say farewell to North America... for now (!)”

Metallica’s sprawling WorldWired Tour comes to the UK this October for five sold out arena shows.
