    Rock out in Geneva at the much anticipated Metallica concert at Palexpo Arena

    The infamous American heavy metal band Metallica are set to hit the stage at Palexpo Arena in Geneva on 11th April 2018.

    Formed in 1981 in Los Angeles, Metallica are known as one of the ‘big four’ bands on thrash metal for their fast tempos, instruments and aggressive musicianship. They quickly became a hit with the underground music community for being edgy and for their unique sound.

    Over the years, the band have realised ten studio albums, four live albums, five extended plays, 39 music videos and 37 singles. With eight Grammy awards and six albums consecutively debuting at number one on the Billboards 200 under their belt, they are one of the largest selling acts in American history.

    Their 10th studio album, Hardwired... to Self-Destruct, was the third-biggest album of 2016 in the US just behind the infamous Drake and Beyoncé. Since being released on the 18th November 2016, the album has sold over three million copies worldwide and was well-received from both fans and critics.

    As their 10th album was such a hit, the band are currently touring well over forty dates across North America, Asia and Europe. If you happen to be visiting Geneva on the 11th of April and are a true metal head, attending the Metallica concert at Palexpo Arena should be at the top of your list of things to do.
