Metallica will play their final M72 World Tour in Detroit this weekend.

The run of shows will continue at Ford Field in the midwest on Friday (November 10) and Sunday (November 12). It follows a summer spent playing arenas and festivals in the UK and Europe.

Metallica made a grand return to Download Festival in June and wowed the crowds twice. The thrash metal legends played two different sets at the festival in Donington Park.

Throughout the M72 World Tour the band will play two nights at each venue - with different setlists for each show. They will be joined by different support acts each night.
