As one chapter of the WorldWired tour came to an end with last week’s final show in North America, another begins as we pack it all up to head to Europe, beginning on September 2nd in Copenhagen with a brand new stage production. In keeping with a theme we started at the beginning of the North American tour with the release of the Fifth Member only show at Webster Hall on vinyl, we’re going to do it again and press up the show from House of Vans too! The three-disc set will be available on the day before the first show, September 1st, at Metallica.com and independent retailers throughout Europe.
When a band doesn't tour its home turf for eight years, then it is fair to wonder exactly how a tour is going to go. When Metallica announced 27 shows in North America to bring their WorldWired tour to stadiums, you'd have been forgiven for wondering how it would go.
