Metallica are planning a tour in 2011 which their manager claims will rival Pink Floyd's 1980-1981 'The Wall' tour, it has been revealed.

Manager Peter Mensch revealed that the band are currently working on ideas for the tour, which will see then play in 10 cities worldwide. No dates have been announced yet.

"Let's just say that next year you will see a Metallica tour that will blow your mind," he told Classic Rock. "They will only play in 10 cities but it will be a huge undertaking. It will be Metallica's equivalent of 'The Wall'."

When asked to define his role as the band's manager, Mensch said it involved, "Saying something like, 'I have this idea for us to play an equivalent of 'The Wall'. So here's some ideas so we can get the professionals in so they can tell me if I'm crazy or not.'"

160 people were recently arrested outside a Metallica gig in Bogata, Columbia during a riot as ticketless fans stormed venue barriers.
