Metallica will kick off their North American tour this August and now they've got some pretty cool takeover shows to go along with 'em. The shows largely feature OTTTO and Bastardane – both of whom feature children of Metallica members – as well as some featuring 200 Stab Wounds, Tribal Gaze, and Fugitive. So at least Metallica grabbed some acts to push as the next generation of metal, right?

"We're just a little over a month away from the North American kick-off of the M72 tour in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Friday, August 4!" wrote Metallica. "And you know that when we town for more than a day, we've gotta make a weekend out of it, so we've got details for you on many of the takeover activities as the tour travels across the country this summer and fall.

"On each Saturday between the two 'No Repeat' weekend shows, there will be film fests, pop-up stores, Ross Halfin book signings, AWMH-sponsored opportunities to give back, and so much more. And let's not forget live music! The lineup making its way through North America with us includes some familiar faces: OTTTO and Bastardane, along with tribute bands Damage Inc., Motorbreath, and Sandman. Plus, a few more acts will join the fun in individual cities.

"Tickets for most of the live shows and film fests go on sale this Friday, June 30, at 10 AM local time, with pre-sales for Fifth Members starting tomorrow, June 27, at 10 AM local time.

"Check for your city below to see what's happening and where… ticket links included. If you don't see the event you're looking for, keep checking back and watch our socials, as we'll be adding to this list as the summer goes on. See you out there!"
