Rock Candy

As if a world tour and an upcoming reissue (of Master Of Puppets) weren’t enough, Metallica is now part of a new fashion line in England.

The group has teamed with designer Justin O’ Shea and the London department store Selfridges for a collection of sweaters, outerwear, socks, hats and other accessories all featuring the group’s logo and going on sale Friday (October 20).

 

The group is playing at London’s O2 Arena on Sunday and next Tuesday (October 22 and 24) as part of its current European tour and it’s also opening a pop-up shop on the city’s Charlotte Street that will be open through Monday (October 23) and is carrying a variety of band items, including a limited edition poster by Richey Beckett.

Metallica is planning a return to Europe during 2018, while the Master Of Puppets deluxe reissue comes out November 10.
