Metallica Kicks Off WorldWired Tour With Lots of Spectacle!

By: KANE-O!

May 11, 2017

When you're back on a tour of the U.S. after a 10-year layoff (and 20 years removed from playing stadiums), you wanna make sure you make and leave a great lasting impression with your fans ... and that's exactly what METALLICA did last night in Baltimore on the opening night of the band's WorldWired Tour! 

Backed by stories-tall video screens and a pyrotechnic show of gigantic proportion, the reigning Kings of Metal treated the faithful to a high-energy, high-volume, 18-song set that featured 5 of the new songs from Hardwired...To Self Destruct, as well as a varied selection of some of the biggest songs in their past catalog (see setlist below). 

The North American leg of the tour will go until mid-August, and after a 2-week break, METALLICA will resume their tour in Europe & Scandinavia, which will keep them on the road (with breaks scheduled in-between) until May of 2018 ... rock on!
