Update (March 16): They promised they’d be adding new dates to their WorldWired Tour and they sure have! Metallica has extended the tour into 2018, with all of the new dates, beginning in Amsterdam in September, taking place in Europe. Scroll to the bottom to see the new, full itinerary as of today.

Here is our original item…
They had teased the announcement on social media and today (Feb. 13), Metallica formally revealed their WorldWired 2017 North American tour in support of their recent album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct. The tour, many dates of which will be held in stadiums, kicks off on May 10 and will crisscross its way across North America into the summer, marking Metallica‘s first proper North American tour since 2009. Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat will be the main support acts for the tour run. See the confirmed dates below.

The announcement came one day after the mic problems that Metallica’s James Hetfield encountered at the 2017 Grammy Awards during their performance with Lady Gaga. (Watch it below.)

Presale tickets will be available to Legacy Fan Club members beginning on Tuesday, February 14 at 9 a.m. local time; two hours prior to Met Club members and Citi cardmembers who have a 11 a.m. start time. Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning this Friday, February 17 at 10 a.m. Click here for details. (Tickets are already available via Ticket Network.)

Each ticket purchased will come with a copy of the Hardwired…To Self-Destruct album, available as a physical CD or a digital download. Fans should expect to receive information from Warner Music Artist Services on how to redeem their albums within 14 business days after their purchase.

Metallica formed in 1981 by drummer Ulrich and guitarist and vocalist Hetfield and has become one of the most influential and commercially successful rock bands in history, with over 110 million albums worldwide. They have scored several multi-platinum albums, including 1991’s Metallica (commonly referred to as The Black Album), with sales of nearly 17 million copies in the U.S.
