Metallica Reveals Dates For Second North American Leg of WorldWired Tour

Metallica Reveals Dates For Second North American Leg of WorldWired Tour

You can’t keep a good band down! They dropped a few hints this past weekend and now it is official… Metallica’s WorldWired Tour returns to North America this Fall!  Following last summer’s 25 date sold-out stadium run, this year Metallica is bringing the in-the-round production currently being seen in European arenas to the U.S. and Canada kicking off on September 2, 2018, in Madison, WI.  Along the way they will be visiting 34 cities that they did not go to last year, and a few that they haven’t been to in decades, including Grand Forks, ND (nearly 30 years), Sioux Falls, SD, El Paso, TX, Birmingham, AL (nearly 26 years) and State College, PA (20 years).  About time, wouldn’t you say?!

The Fall/Winter tour will mark a few firsts for the band. Each show will get rolling with the Light It Up pre-show party hosted by their very good friend Jim Breuer.  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.  And if you love to travel and one show just isn’t enough, then perhaps the Wherever I May Roam Black Ticket is for you!  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.  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!  A limited number of 250 of these Black Tickets* will be available for $598 (yes… celebrating the re-issue of the Garage Days Re-Revisited EP!).  All sale dates and times below.

Of course, some things don’t change!  As they have been doing for most of the WorldWired shows, every ticket purchased includes your choice of a standard physical or standard digital copy of Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. Keep it for yourself or gift it to a friend or family member. You’ll receive info via e-mail after your ticket purchase on how to obtain your copy.**  The enhanced experience options designed to take your Metalli-night to the next level are also returning as Metallica continue to partner with the team that makes it all happen at CID Entertainment.  You’ll have three options of special enhanced experiences, including premium tickets and amenities ranging from early access to the venue and the “Memory Remains” exhibit of memorabilia to meeting some of the band(!) For full package details, visit https://www.cidentertainment.com/events/metallica-worldwired-tour

Finally, Metallica continue to raise funds for their All Within My Hands Foundation, which supports a cross-section of national, local and Bay Area charities, music education programs and local food banks. Continuing their collaboration with Crowdrise, Metallica encourage you to make a donation when purchasing tickets to the upcoming shows and each time you donate, you’ll be entered to win tickets, pre-show party passes, meet and greet passes, and one lucky winner will be flown to the last show on the tour. For more information, visit https://www.crowdrise.com/Metallica2018

“Enough!” you say. “How do I get tickets?” Presales for Fan Club members begin tomorrow, February 27th. Visit https://metallica.com/metclub for all the details. Citi card members may purchase tickets beginning at 11:00 AM local time tomorrow, February 27th and Spotify will have pre-sale tickets starting on Wednesday February 28th.

Metallica Launches Website For Their All Within My Hands Foundation

In February of this year, Metallica announced the formation of their All Within My Hands Foundation, which is dedicated to assisting and enriching the lives of the members of the communities by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger, and other critical local services. Today, the band has launched the website, www.allwithinmyhands.orgto keep fans up to date on the foundation, new activities, and the specific causes being supported. Fans can sign up for the e-mail list HERE to receive updates.

To celebrate the launch of the new website, as part of their “Give Good” campaign Starbucks and Spotify are donating $1 million to be divided between All Within My Hands, Chance The Rapper’s Social Works, and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation. To commemorate the partnerships, starting today (Tuesday, November 28th) limited edition gift cards featuring each artist will be available at 8,000 Starbucks stores throughout the U.S. while supplies last. Visit www.Starbucks.com to find your closest Starbucks store with available gift cards.

Metallica have long taken pride in giving back to their community and have played at many benefit concerts over the years, including the Bridge School Benefit Concerts (appearing three times), the MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concerts, Live Earth, Global Citizen, and most recently Band Together Bay Area. The band has donated proceeds from ticket sales and album releases to various charitable organizations, including Fondation de France’s Give For France and Gilda’s Club NYC.

Putting new music out there, getting in your faces once again and all that comes with it is what we love to do more than anything else, so strap yourselves in … INCOMING!”

Metallica also premiered the official video for “Hardwired” today.  The clip can be viewed HERE.
