Metallica may not have had the best performance at the Grammys last night, thanks to a faulty microphone, but its band members will have many chances to reaffirm their position as global titans of metal on the long-awaited 2017 North American tour.
The Worldwired Tour will hit AT&T Stadium on June 16.
James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo take the stage for the first time since 2009, when the legendary band came to town on the World Magnetic Tour in support of its 2008 record Death Magnetic.
With the release of Hardwired... To Self Destruct, Metallica proved it's still on top of its game both artistically and commercially as the album debuted at No. 1 last November with almost 300,000 sold in its first week, matched with favorable reviews across the board.
With more than 100,000,000 albums sold worldwide since forming in 1981, Metallica is on a super short list of truly iconic acts still releasing relevant music and still playing to massive crowds across the globe.
Tickets go on sale on Feb. 18 at 10 a.m. and range from $55.50-$155.50. Each ticket includes either a CD or digital download of Hardwired... To Self Destruct. Avenged Sevenfold will open the show.
