Metallica ‘Hardwires’ Europe
Wherever they may roam, the guys from Metallica are ready to rock. Europe is getting a heavy dose of the thrash legends, with dates spanning more than eight months as a part of the “WorldWired” tour. Kvelertak is coming along as a special guest.

The first new dates for Metallica in Europe are Sept. 4 and 6 at the
Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, though the group already had a show scheduled at Copenhagen’s Royal Arena on Sept. 2. The first leg stretches through September, October, and November. There is then a break in the shows, which pick up again in Feb. 10 in Bologna, Italy, and continue through March, April and May, finishing up May 9 and 11 in Helsinki.
Most of the venues are arenas, and many cities are blessed with two nights of Metallica.
The set will feature tunes from the band’s latest album, Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, which came out through the band’s own label, Blackened Recordings, in November. Purchases of tickets include a physical or digital copy of the album.
There are going to be three levels of VIP experiences at the shows, which include premium tickets, meet & greets, and early access to the venue and a special memorabilia exhibit.
Metallica is playing in South America’s Lollapalooza events in Brazil, Argentina and Chile on March 25, 31 and April 1 respectively. After that there are tons of North America, starting May 10 in Baltimore.
