Metallica To Announce A European Stadium Tour For 2019

Josh Lowe for Alternative Revolt

Metallica will start a European stadium tour in May 2019. The tour, which will run through August 2019, is expected to be officially announced in September.

Metallica just completed a 24-date European tour and is set to hit the road at the end of the summer for the 2018-2019 North American leg of of its “WorldWired” tour.

Touring in support of its latest album, “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”, that arrived in November 2016, Metallica launched the world tour in Latin America a month before the disc’s release. In early 2017, prior to the North American stadium tour, the band made festival appearances and headlined concerts at venues in Asia, Europe and Latin America.

Although Metallica played U.S. stadiums last summer, the band was mostly indoors for the first leg of its European tour last fall.
