The North American leg of the band‘s “WorldWired” trek will hit stadiums in nineteen more cities before ending in mid-August. The band drummer Lars Ulrich spoke Rolling Stone that the band was genuinely surprised to learn they might still play stadiums, saying, “It was like, ‘Holy fuck, individuals really still care about this band in ways that you stopped taking for granted literally many years ago. It was very inspiring and kind of eye-opening.”
He added: “Full stadium runs can sometimes be a little intimidating. There is all these things to worry about like, ‘You should really try to play maybe only on the weekend,’ and, ‘Where do you play on Tuesday?’ and some of those practicalities can get just a little bewildering. We just threw caution to the wind. Doing a stadium run seemed like the perfect thing on the back of how well this record has been received and all the good will that is out there in METALLICA‘s world right now.”
