Metallica tour dates 1982

Collecting Metallica tickets is what it all started with for me, and I will be bringing you a complete set of Metallica tourdates from year one to present. This post deals with the 1982-shows, the very first shows!

Metallica did 27 shows this year, mostly as random supportacts or at parties. Apart from “Hit the lights!” they did not have any proper recordings ready to promote their name.
