If there's one band that knows how to merch, it's Metallica. The multi-platinum heavy metal legends and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members are infamous for raking in cash from sales of their t-shirts and other branded gear, reportedly racking up an estimated $125 million in merch in North America alone since 1991.

(Heck, the wiseacres at the Hard Times even lampooned this fact with a 2018 story about how the band’s merch booth is the “world’s 32nd largest economy.”)

True to form, Metallica’s blockbuster M72 world tour will offer myriad merch for sale when it rolls into Phoenix this week, and not just during their two concerts at State Farm Stadium on Sept. 1 and 3.

Each city on the M72 tour is hosting multiple events endorsed by the band — think pre-parties, tribute shows and fan contests — as well as a special Metallica-branded pop-up shop offering merch and exclusives for sale.

Phoenix’s version of the shop will be located inside downtown Phoenix venue space 435 Collective Studio + Events. It will be open daily during a five-day run from Aug. 31 to Sept. 3.

Metallica fans can purchase a variety of band shirts (all of which are black, of course) boasting album titles like “Kill ‘Em All,” “Master of Puppets” and “Ride the Lighting,” as well as copies of "72 Seasons" on vinyl, M72 tour merch and various exclusives. There are also a few backdrops featuring the Metallica logo that are suitable for photo ops.

Here’s everything to know about the shop, when it will be open, and what it's selling.
