Metallica is continuing their campaign to play every single country on this planet with their first-ever show in Saudi Arabia next month. Metallica is set to headline the first of three nights at the Soundstorm festival in Riyadh on December 14, which is set to include artists like Pharrell Williams, Chris Brown, and H.E.R..

"We're not done with 2023 just yet, as an amazing opportunity has just come our way to perform at a major festival that we have never played in a part of the world we rarely get to visit," said Metallica of the performance.

"We're excited to announce that on Thursday, December 14 we’ll be the first hard rock band to ever play at @MDLBeast's Soundstorm Festival in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Festival and single-day tickets are available now at"

Metallica is currently the only band to ever play shows on all seven continents, having played their Freeze 'Em All concert on December 8, 2013 in Antarctica. So now they've just gotta play every country and then they're good… until shows in the Mariana Trench and/or space start happening.
