After performing on a fiery stage with Lady Gaga at last night’s (Feb.12) Grammys, Metallica announced today that their going on a North American tour.

The WorldWired tour is in support of their new album Hardwired…To Self Destruct and will begin in May. Pre-sale tickets for Legacy Fan Club members will be available Tuesday (Feb. 14). General admission tickets will go on sale Friday (Feb. 17). Also, each ticket purchased comes with a copy of the album. 


On music’s biggest night, Metallica’s James Hetfield shared a mic with Gaga, performing “Moth Into Flame” after there were unexpected technical difficulties with Hetfield’s mic. 

Gaga rocked a distressed Metallica crop top paired with full-body fishnets — serving a rocker princess look that complemented the bands’ raw edginess.
