Metallica Announce North American Leg of WorldWired Tour

Metallica have mapped out the North American dates of their 2017 WorldWired Tour. The heavy metal legends will storm stadiums, arenas and festival stages this summer on their first full-scale trek here since 2009.

The 25-date North American leg kicks off May 10th at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium and winds around the U.S. and Canada before concluding August 16th in Edmonton. Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat will open for the majority of the dates, with Gojira joining the bill for the August dates.

Metallica previously supported their new LP with a handful of U.S. small venue gigs (like New York's Webster Hall) in 2016, as well as the first ever concert at Minneapolis' U.S. Bank Stadium. In August 2016, Lars Ulrich told Rolling Stone of the band's touring plans, "It's time to come back and do some proper penetration of America," noting that the band hadn't done a proper tour in the U.S. in nearly a decade.

On Sunday night's Grammys, Metallica teamed with Lady Gaga to perform the Hardwired track "Moth Into Flame," with the collaborators soldiering through a raging rendition despite being sabotaged by James Hetfield's faulty microphone.
