Coinciding with the start of their UK tour later this month, Metallica have announced a pop-up shop in London.

The heavy metal titans’ pop-up shop is situated at 45 Charlotte Road in Shoreditch and it will open from Wednesday 18th to Monday 23rd October.

Opening hours will be midday to 8pm for the opening five days and midday to 6pm on the Monday.

Metallica will be in the English capital to play two completely and utterly sold-out shows at The O2 Arena on Sunday 22nd and Tuesday 24th October.

Sadly, for fans with tickets to their Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham shows, the pop-up shop won’t be touring the country; a post on their official website last month confirmed the shops will only be popping-up in Cologne and London.

Just like their series of pop-up stories in North America, the London shop will, according to the band, boast “cool new, exclusive and collectible items.”

With support from Norwegian metallers Kvelertak, Metallica play the following UK shows this month:

London O2 Arena – Sun 22nd
London O2 Arena – Tue 24th
Glasgow SSE Hydro – Thu 26th
Manchester Arena – Sat 28th
Birmingham Genting Arena – Mon 30th
