Hammett, who has a home in Hawaii, jumped onstage with Journey at their October 6th show in Honolulu. The Metallica axeman played alongside Journey guitarist Neal Schon on “Wheel in the Sky,” transitioning into the famous “Enter Sandman” riff a few minutes into the song, much to the fans’ delight. Journey singer Arnel Pineda even sung a few lines of the Metallica classic, before the band and Hammett went back into “Wheel in the Sky.”
The Hawaii show wrapped up Journey’s touring for 2022, but the band has a handful of North American dates scheduled for March and April 2023, with tickets available here.
Metallica, meanwhile, have a couple more gigs on tap for 2022. The first is a tribute to late Megaforce Records founders Jonny and Martha Zazula, taking place November 6th in Hollywood, Florida, with tickets available here. The second is the band’s annual “Helping Hands” concert to benefit their All Within My Hands Foundation, set for December 16th in Los Angeles.
