The upcoming South American dates mark the first 2020 shows Metallica has announced for their WorldWired tour. The tour started back in 2016 and is in support of Metallica’s latest album, “Hardwired…to Self-Destruct.” Metallica has promised that they will follow up “Hardwired” with a new album, but chances are, that will be well after touring wraps.

In other news, Metallica is in Europe right now on tour and will be back in the U.S. in September for two special concerts with the San Francisco Orchestra. The San Francisco shows will be filmed the upcoming concert film “S&M2.” Metallica is also slated to tour Australia and New Zealand this year with Slipknot opening on those dates.
