NEWTON, Iowa  —  On Friday night, heavy metal band Metallica brings its world tour to the Iowa Speedway.

Construction on the massive stage is already underway on the infield of the racetrack. Track officials have taken down the safety fence in front of the grandstand to give fans an unobstructed view.

On Monday, Iowa Speedway president Jimmy Small tweeted a picture of the stage build in progress.

Tickets are still available, and they currently range from $50-300.
