A major, MAJOR concert announcement was made this morning.

Freakin' METALLICA are finally coming back to El Paso!!  The Buzz Adams Morning Show dropped the news earlier today. The date is Feb. 28, 2019, the place is the Don Haskins Center and tickets go on sale this coming Friday, March 2nd at 10am via Ticketmaster, Ticketmaster.com and the Don Haskins Center Box Office. (Be ready peeps, this sucker is going to sell out QUICK!)

A special pre-sale event takes place this coming Thursday starting at 9 a.m. We’ll tell you about that soon so keep listening and check back here for details.

KLAQ will also have tickets to give away, cool memorabilia to hand over, and we'll even take a couple of the biggest Metallica fans backstage! For more details and chances to win, keep listening to the Q and keep visiting KLAQ.com.  (Read our contest rules here)

This might set a record for longest time between concert announcement and the actual concert.  So, in case you weren’t paying attention, I DID say 2019!  Think about it, by the time it gets here we will have already seen Nothing MoreFozzy, Through FireZZ Top, IncubusShinedown and many, MANY more!  What I just did there is called a “tease,” because this is only the first of some exciting concert announcements we'll be putting in your earholes over the next couple of months!
