Encore Drive-In Nights is bringing Metallica to screens across North America on August 29 and Port Elmsley, between Perth and Smiths Falls, is among the screens on the list. The company's two prior pandemic-era presentations featured Garth Brooks in June and Blake Shelton in July.

Three Days Grace will serve as the opening act for Metallica's August 29 show, for which tickets will go on sale August 14.

The performance will feature archival footage from the band's career along with a full "live" concert.

Others are taking a more retro route and staging concerts for drive-in theater screens.

Ticket prices are $115 per carload, the same price point as for the recent Shelton one-nighter.

However, Tuchel did then suggest that Mbappe would most likely be used off the bench against the Italians. We all have the feeling we've prepared in the best fashion.

The one-night-only concert, which features an opening performance from Three Days Grace, will screen at hundreds of theaters across the USA, includingThe Nightlight, a mobile drive-in theater that's been set up in Los Banos and Madera 2 Drive-In Theatre. Tickets are $115 and include admission for up to six people in every auto and includes four downloads of Metallica's "S&M 2" release.

Pre-sale tickets, which will be available to Metallica's Fifth Member fan club, will go on sale on August 12, while general tickets will be sold on August 14.

The band has just been announced as the latest act in the Encore Drive-In Nights Concert Series.

For some reason, Three Days Grace is also filming an opening set for the August 29 event.
