While bassist Robert Trujillo has once said Metallica’s follow-up to 2016’s Hardwired…to Self-Destruct will arrive a lot sooner than their previous two albums, it doesn’t look like the band are stopping anytime soon from their WorldWired tour. With that being said, these giants have announced six headlining South American shows and their special guests will not include Slipknot or Ghost. This time around, Metallica have invited Greta Van Fleet as their special guests. The trek is scheduled to kick off on April 15th, 2020 in Santiago, Chile and will run through April 27th in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
Fan Club presales will begin on Monday (19th) at 10:00AM local time for Legacy Members and 11:00 AM local time for Fifth Members. General ticket sales will start on Thursday (22nd) at 10:00 am local time.
