Metallica has announced that they will be heading to South America next year for a full headlining tour which will see the band perform in places they never have before. A message from the band reads as follows:

"Last night we told you that we can't wait to start our year with our friends in South America... we're back again as promised to announce four more shows, including two dates in Central America!

"We are looking forward to visiting cities we have never played before... San Jose, Costa Rica and Panama City, Panama to be specific. And as we've only had the chance to visit Caracas and Bogota once before in 1999, this leg of the World Magnetic tour is sure to be a memorable one.

"Being the super smart people that you are, you have no doubt noticed that there are more than a few holes in the schedule... please keep checking back here over the next couple of weeks for more announcements."

The current tour dates are as follows:

January 19 - Lima, Peru - Estadio San Marcos
March 7 - San Jose, Costa Rica - Saprissa Stadium
March 8 - Panama City, Panama - Plaza Figali
March 10 - Bogota, Columbia - Park Simon Bolivar
March 12 - Caracas, Venezuela - La Rinconada
