Apocalyptica announce 'Plays Metallica by Four Cellos’ North American fall tour

This fall, Finnish neoclassical metal band Apocalyptica will bring their special brand of refined hard rock stomp to North America. Beginning in September, the group will tour North America to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album Plays Metallica by Four Cellos. The nine-track LP is filled with instrumental covers of songs from Metallica’s second, third and fourth studio albums. In June 2015, the band released a remastered edition Plays Metallica that featured unreleased renditions of “Battery,” “Nothing Else Matters” and “Seek and Destroy.”

Apocalyptica’s North American tour will start in Atlanta, Georgia before moving on to venues in Charlotte, Washington DC, New York City, Boston, Montréal, Ontario, Chicago, St. Louis, Denver, Seattle, Vancouver, Portland, Los Angeles and San Diego before concluding in Las Vegas at the Hard Casino’s music venue The Joint.
