Metallica, a band that has inspired names like, System of a Down, Travis Barker, Creed and Slayer to name a few emerged on the metal scene in 1983 and their music resonated with the masses with their first record, ‘Kill ‘Em All.’ The album became a critical hit and was included in Rolling Stones’ list of, ‘The 100 Greatest Albums of the ‘80s.’ The band has not looked back since then and has recorded several hit records like, ‘St. Anger,’ ‘Load’ and ‘Reload’ all of which found their way to the top of the charts in many countries and brought them mainstream popularity.
It’s been over three decades since Metallica’s arrival in the industry but they haven’t stopped rocking just yet. If you are planning to attend their ‘WorldWired Tour’ then expect them to perform live versions of their most successful hits which will surely take you back to the golden era of metal music.
Live performances of new songs from ‘Hardwired… to Self-Destruct’
Metallica has got a new album out and it’s called, ‘Hardwired… to Self-Destruct.’ Yes, we are so excited about it that we cannot stress this enough. What that means is that you can look forward to the band playing their latest anthems from their tenth studio effort live. The record came out one year ago in the fall of 2016 and climbed to the first spot in several countries like, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Germany among others.
‘Hardwired… to Self-Destruct’ has been praised by the critics and ranked at the top spot on Rolling Stones’ list of the, ’20 Best Metal Albums of 2016.’ It received five stars out of five from Kerrang! and The Guardian called the album Metallica’s, “finest record in 25 Years.” Moreover, it has been certified gold by the RIAA so far and has singles like, Atlas! Rise, Moth into Flame and Hardwired. The album also contains other metal hits and you will get to see Metallica perform those tracks when they embark on the ‘WorldWired Tour.’
Earth shattering performances
Metallica have been touring since they came out with their debut record, ‘Kill ‘Em All’ in 1983. They have played music all over the world including in festivals like, Monsters of Rock, the Download Festival, Days on the Green and the Reading Festival.
If you are a fan, then you know that it simply is not possible to attend a Metallica concert and not be blown away by the quartet’s powerful performances.

From screaming fans, to extremely loud music and all the way to Metallica raising the bar even higher in terms of live concerts, it promises to be an experience unlike any other.

Each of these bands has enjoyed success in the industry and are known internationally for their music. They have also come out with many hit records and have won numerous accolades for their contributions in the music industry. Now, Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat and Gojira will be rotating the opening act duties throughout Metallica’s road trip and this is your chance to watch multiple metal acts live at one concert.
An epic stage production
Since we are talking about Metallica, how is it possible that their amazing stage production is not discussed? One of the founding members of the multi-platinum recording group, Lars Ulrich said, “You want to make the shows into events. We’ve got a few things, obviously, that are tied into the record and a few different bits and tugs that’s gonna make it fun.”
This statement from Ulrich has already created a lot of excitement among their fans who they are waiting desperately for the group to perform in their city. Metallica is about to hit the road and this is as good as it gets for heavy metal fans. If you are one of them, get ready for an experience you will not forget for a long time to come.
