Yeah!

Last year, Metallica embarked on one of the biggest tours of the summer, bringing Avenged Sevenfold, Gojira and Volbeat along with them as they hit stadiums across North America. Now, Metallica are returning to the continent in September later this year for an arena run.

It all starts in Madison, Wisconsin on Sept. 2 and there's only a handful of dates each month as Metallica take it easy on themselves, especially after announcing they'd only be playing about 50 shows a year. The "WorldWired" tour will spill into 2019 as metal's biggest band hits 34 cities on their second North American leg in support of Hardwired... To Self-Destruct.

Production wise, fans can expect to see the band return to the "in-the-round" stage that's currently in use on their European arena tour. This means the stage will be isolated in the center of the venue, surrounded by fans on all four sides. Tickets go on sale March 2 at 10AM local time and the list of dates can be viewed below.
