Metallica Announce 2018 North American Dates For WorldWired Tour

If you didn’t get a chance to see Metallica on their WorldWired Tour last year, you’re in luck. The heavy metal titans revealed the North American leg of their ongoing world tour. The 34-date tour finds the band playing cities they didn’t visit during their stadium tour last year, including some places they haven’t played in decades like North Dakatoa.

Dates kick off September 2 in Madison, WI and won’t wrap up until 2019 will their last show in Grand Rapids, MI on March 13. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 2 at Live Nation. The Fan Club holds its presale February 27. Every ticket purchase comes with a physical or digital copy of the band’s latest album Hardwired…to Self-Destruct. Check out all the dates below.

A pre-show party will be hosted by comedian Jim Breuer at every gig. “Jim, along with a DJ to get the night rocking with some great tunes, hits the stage before the band with comedy, fan interaction, giveaways and much more,” the band said in a statement.

Metallica is also offering special “Wherever I May Roam Black Tickets” which gives fans floor access to every Metallica show on the upcoming tour. “For the first time in ‘Tallica history, you may purchase one ticket that will allow you floor access to any Metallica show on the 2018/2019 North American tour,” the band said of the tickets, of which only 250 will be available. “Feel like trucking to Tulsa? Booking to Boise? Motoring to Minneapolis? No problem… you pick the show, call us no less than 48 hours before the gig and you’re in!”
