Metallica just announced their WorldWired 2017 North American tour

Not that there was ever any doubt, but following last night's microphone malfunction during the 59th Grammy Awards, a glitch that they maneuvered around with great dexterity while performing with Lady Gaga, Metallica proved once again to be the reigning kings of rock. And now, they're going on tour. 

The band will embark on a 2017 WorldWired tour in support of their 2016 album Hardwired... To Self-Destruct. Kicking off in Mexico and then heading to South America before landing in Baltimore in May, the shows will feature three different opening acts during different legs of the tour: Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat and Gojira.
