Metallica have taken the rock and metal world by surprise by announcing another UK and European leg of their WorldWired tour which will take place in 2019.
They’ve lined up a total of 25 stadium shows which will get under way in Lisbon, Portugal, on May 1, and conclude with a performance in Mannheim, Germany, on August 25. Ghost and Bokassa will have been named as special guests.
Metallica last toured in the UK in October 2017 and wrapped up dates in mainland Europe back in May this year in support of their latest studio album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct.
Tickets will go on sale from 10am on Friday, September 28, while a fan club pre-sale will get under way tomorrow (Tuesday, September 25).

Last week, it was announced that Metallica would hold an auction and play a rare acoustic performance in San Francisco on November 3 in aid of their All Within My Hands Foundation.
