METALLICA’s rumored North American summer stadium tour with AVENGED SEVENFOLD and VOLBEAT is expected to be announced this coming Monday, February 13. Both METALLICA and live performance promoter Live Nation tweeted the same seven-second video earlier today with the word “Monday” featured in an similar font as that on the band’s new album, “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”. In addition, Live Nation’s Fb pages for Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, Pacific Northwest, Phoenix, New England and Detroit are all displaying the identical clip, strongly suggesting that there will be dates in each of these markets. Moreover, the video was shared by the Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based live performance promoter Evenko.

Whether the rumors are true or not, bassist Robert Trujillo informed The Pulse Of Radio that METALLICA is looking forward to getting back on the road within the U.S. “Oh yeah, it is exciting, you know,” he mentioned. “We have not spent enough time within the States in recent years and it has been a while, so rather than going and hanging out in Europe and spending lots of time there before we come to the States, we are actually hitting the States first. And that is something that I am really excited about, as a result of it has been a while. It looks like people are hungry for METALLICA again and they’ve been waiting a very long time.”
METALLICA will be touring in support of “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”, its first all-new studio effort since 2008’s “Death Magnetic”.
The band just performed three shows in Copenhagen, Denmark and is scheduled to perform at the 59th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (February 12) in Los Angeles. The band is also slated to play an intimate live performance for round 3,000 or so followers at the Hollywood Palladium that same evening.
METALLICA’s sole other North American date up to now is May 21 at the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, Ohio.
