Bad news — that posted you’ve seen touting a new Metallica tour is a fake.
The poster purported to promote a tour called “Worldwired Australia — ’19” and included fellow legendary thrash metal acts Megadeth and Anthrax, with stadium dates set for June.
Touring company Live Nation has since confirmed that the image is a fake.
What makes the fake poster even more insidious is that Metallica have hinted that they’ll be coming down under soon.
It’s been five years since the metal maestros headlined Soundwave Festival, and they haven’t down a headline tour down here since 2010.
