Metallica is preparing for a massive North American leg of its ‘WorldWired’ tour.  Here are 33 venues that are probably on the list.

Metallica is one of the highest-grossing touring bands in the world.  Now, they’re getting ready to unveil a North American tour schedule for their long-running ‘WorldWired’ tour, with at least 33 venues participating.

Over the weekend, these venues uploaded a cryptic teaser video with one word: ‘Monday’.  The lettering matches the artistic motif of Metallica’s latest release, Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, released in 2016.  The band started a massive worldwide tour shortly after that album’s release, one that included a kick-off in Puerto Rico and a performance at the 2017 Grammys.

Most likely, the ‘Monday’ refers to Monday, February 26th, when the group is expected to release its full, North American tour schedule.  In the meantime, metal bible Blabbermouth compiled a list of the 33 different venues that have posted the teaser video.

Here are those venues.


The band has already completed a number of European dates this year.  Hardwired… To Self-Destruct is Metallica’s tenth studio album.
