Metallica To Host Pop-Up Shop in London Surrounding UK Tour Dates

Kerrang!, the U.K.’s only weekly music magazine has announced a collaboration with House Of Vans to bring a one-of-a-kind, one-stop-shop Metallica spectacle to London to coincide with the band’s Kerrang! Awards nomination and its forthcoming Twickenham show. There will be an epic photo exhibition which will not only display never before seen photos from photographer Tom Barnes’s exclusive shoot, it’ll also showcase the birth of the band as seen through the pages of Kerrang! in an unparalleled celebration of the period between 1982 and 1989. Named “Hardwired… And Early Dayz”, the exhibition will run from June 18 for a month and gives a never-before-seen insight into not only one of the greatest bands of all time, but also the inner workings of one of the world’s greatest rock magazines. Also included will be the U.K. premiere of Murder In The Front Row, the “uncensored and boisterous” documentary of The Bay Area thrash scene. The exact date has not yet been announced — keep an eye on Kerrang! socials for the big date reveal. House Of Vans will also be hosting an exclusive Metallica pop-up shop on June 19 and 20 in celebration of Metallica’s “WorldWired” tour, which makes its London stop at Twickenham Stadium on the 20th.
