Metallica have added another date to their WorldWired tour in support of 10th album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct.
They’ll open the run with an appearance at the Gocheok Sky Dome in South Korea on January 11, ahead of previously-announced shows in Denmark, Brazil, Argentina and Chile, with more to be listed in due course.
Drummer Lars Ulrich announced the news in a video, available below.
In August he said the band were desperate to start playing their new material on the road, adding: “Some of the stuff on Death Magnetic was pretty cerebral – you had to think about what was coming up. Some of the songs from the new record are a little more physical. It’s going to be a lot of fun to play.”
He promised they’d deliver “proper penetration of America” as part of their schedule and continued: “We’re going to start pretty much full-on touring in January. There will definitely be some pretty extensive touring.”
Hardwired… To Self-Destruct is released on November 18. Before that, Metallica play Neil Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit concert in California on October 22 and 23, followed by shows in South America.
