This weekend only, jump in to Fortnite to experience Metallica’s music like never before in Metallica: Fuel. Fire. Fury. This immersive music experience journeys through five classic Metallica tracks plus — because this is a Metallica concert — the customary live intro of Ennio Morricone’s “The Ecstasy of Gold.”

Metallica: Fuel. Fire. Fury. will have six different showtimes across two days. Mark your calendars, because these times will be your only chance to experience the concert live in Fortnite:

  • Saturday, June 22, 2024: 2 PM ET, 5 PM ET, 11 PM ET
  • Sunday, June 23, 2024: 10 AM ET, 2 PM ET, 5 PM ET

Want to hear more about Metallica’s journey across Fortnite? Listen to this week’s “The Metallica Report” podcast where James Hetfield shares insight into how the band feels about taking over Fortnite.

During the episode James shared: “It [Fortnite] was a really cool idea. And the way it was explained to me is it’s a whole ‘nother continent. And we’ve played all seven so might as well play the eighth one, you know. So let’s get in on that. And yeah, explore and be adventurous and see what comes out of this. Why would we not?”

Listen to the full episode of The Metallica Report here and check out these clips on Instagram and X.


To check out Metallica: Fuel. Fire. Fury. you will need to download Fortnite. Once you’re logged in and Fortnite is running, select the “Metallica: Fuel. Fire. Fury.” tile in the Discover screen (Fortnite’s menu). The experience will be in Fortnite’s Discover screen for thirty minutes at each showtime, so even if you jump in later than the listed start time, you can still be part of the full show. You can jump into Metallica: Fuel. Fire. Fury. with a party of up to four!


On June 13, Metallica became the first band to take center stage across all Fortnite experiences, with Metallica-themed gameplay in Fortnite Festival, Battle Royale, LEGO Fortnite, and Rocket Racing. Additionally a new Season – and a new way to play Fortnite Festival (Battle Stage) – launched.
