Metallica are plotting a series of major gigs next year which could rival Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' live dates, their manager has revealed.

Peter Mensch said the group were in the process of arranging the shows, which he claimed “will blow your mind”.

“They will only play in 10 cities but it will be a huge undertaking,” he said.

“It will be Metallica’s equivalent of The Wall.”

Metallica are currently on the South American leg of their 'Death Magnetic' tour.

In an interview with Classic Rock magazine, Mensch said that as manager he was responsible for ensuring the band's live shows remained interesting.

“Just shooting off dumb ideas and, by the way, between you and me, some of it is recycling stuff that people did 25 years ago but no one’s smart enough to know that we recycled it,” he added.

As previously reported on Gigwise, around 160 people were arrested and at least eight people injured outside a Metallica concert in Bogota last Wesdnesday.
