Metallica announce European tour

Metallica are bringing their WorldWired tour in support of “Hardwired…To Self Destruct” to Europe for dates this fall and in the spring of 2018.

“Immediately following our run of shows opening the new Royal Arena in Copenhagen last month we promised we would be back to Europe this year... and we will!!,” says the band. “The WorldWired tour hits European arenas starting in September and doesn’t stop until May of 2018! Kicking off on September 4th in Amsterdam (following the rescheduled Copenhagen show on September 2nd) we’ll be covering all corners of the continent from Lisbon to Helsinki, Oslo to Budapest and beyond.

“Our Norwegian friends Kvelertak have signed on to take this wild ride with us for the duration of the European portion of the tour,” they add. “Please note that no additional shows will be added in this part of the world in the immediate future, so you can plan your own leg of the tour now.”

Each ticket purchased will come with a copy of the "Hardwired... To Self-Destruct" album, available as a physical CD or a digital download.

Metallica Fan Club pre-sales begin on March 21, with tickets available to Legacy Members at 9 AM, GMT/10 AM, CET followed by all Fifth Members the same day at 10 AM, GMT/11 AM, CET. The pre-sale ends the next day, March 22nd, at 9 AM, GMT/10 AM, CET or sooner if sold out. Please visit the Club News section for additional details on the Fan Club pre-sale.

General public seats will be available March 24.

The European trek will follow a summer stadium tour of North America that Metallica will begin in Baltimore, MD on May 10.

The group are next scheduled to perform at Lollapalooza festivals in Brazil (March 25), Argentina (March 31) and Chile (April 1)
