It’s happening, all the rumors are true and Metallica have just revealed their North American leg of their WorldWired World Tour dates with Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat and Gorjira as the opening acts, hitting stadiums all across the country.

Tickets for the U.S. stretch of the WorldWired Tour go on sale February 17th. Legacy Fan Club members having an opportunity to buy tickets starting February 14th. Each ticket purchased for the WorldWired tour will come with either a digital or physical copy of Hardwired… to Self-Destruct.

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 being sabotaged by James Hetfield’s faulty microphone. The Grammy stage was just practice, the real show will smash your faces all summer.
