Metallica News Round-Up: NYC Club Show, Global Citizen Festival Video

Metallica will be thanking fans for their patience waiting for a new album on Tuesday night (September 27) in New York City.

The group will play a small club show at the city's Webster Hall, making the $25 tickets available only via a lottery for members of the group's online fan club; Proceeds will benefit the City Harvest food bank.

The show is part of the build-up campaign for Hardwired...To Self-Destruct, Metallica's first new studio album since 2008's Death Magnetic. It follows Metallica's five-song set on Saturday (September 24), at the Global Citizen Festival in New York's Central park, where the group performed only old favorites "For Whom The Bell Tolls," "Master Of Puppets, "One," "Nothing Else Matters" and "Enter Sandman."  (See video below.)

Hardwired... is due out November 18.
