Metallica to launch 2017 dates in South Korea

Metallica will perform their first show of 2017 in Seoul, South Korea as they tour in support of their tenth album, “Hardwired…To Self Destruct.”

“We’re excited to kick off 2017 with the first show of what promises to be a year taking us to all corners of the globe on the WorldWired Tour,” says the band. “The New Year will be just over a week old when we return to Seoul, South Korea on January 11, 2017 at the Gocheok Sky Dome for the first of six shows in that corner of the world... stay tuned for additional announcements in the coming days and weeks.

“Discounted floor tickets in Seoul will be available October 24, 2016 at noon local time for 24 hours. All tickets go on sale on October 26 at noon and are available through Interpark Ticketing, hotline (1544-1555), and the Interpark Ticketing app.”

“This is just the beginning,” adds the group. “We look forward to more shows in Asia and beyond!”

The Seoul show will follow the tour’s opening leg across Latin America this fall, which fires up on October 26 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Due November 18, the two-disc “Hardwired…To Self Destruct” was produced by Greg Fidelman, guitarist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich.

Metallica will next perform a pair of acoustic sets at Neil Young’s 30th anniversary Bridge School Benefit Concerts this weekend.
