Metallica Announces North American WorldWired Tour Dates

Metallica

Fresh off of their performance at the Grammys, Metallica has announced a North American leg of their “WorldWired” tour. The trek, which kicks off May 10th in Baltimore, will be in support of their latest album, Hardwired… To Self-Destruct. It will be the band’s first full-scale North American tour since 2009.

After the Baltimore, Maryland performance, Metallica will zig-zag across the U.S. with several stops into Canada. The tour is slated to end on August 16th at the Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, Alberta. Support on the tour will include Avenged Sevenfold (with bassist Johnny Christ), Volbeat (with Kaspar Boye Larsen), and Gojira (with Jean-Michel Labadie). Of course, the mighty Robert Trujillo will be holding it down for Metallica.

Catch Trujillo and the crew from a Seoul, South Korea performance of “Now That We’re Dead” as part of the WorldWired tour:
