Metallica will bring their WorldWired Tour back on the road later this year when they embark on a 34-date run across much of North America. The outing will last well into 2019, and will take the band to many cities they missed on the 2017 leg of their tour.

Metallica’s upcoming jaunt will kick off in Madison, WI on September 2nd before wrapping up in Grand Rapids, MI on March 13th, 2019. Evidently, the tour will find the band performing in a number of locales that have been off their radar for some time. According to Rolling Stone, the metal icons haven’t played in El Paso, TX, Birmingham, AL, and Sioux Falls, SD in over 25 years, while Grand Forks, ND hasn’t seen a Metallica show in more than three decades.

As was the case with last year’s tour, Metallica will be hitting the road in support of their 2016 LP Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. Unlike last year’s tour, the upcoming run will feature opening sets from comedian and longtime Metallica friend/fan Jim Bruer, who will perform at a series of “Light It Up” pre-show parties before every gig. Watch Bruer riff on his friends in Metallica below:

In a move that would make plenty of jam band fans salivate, Metallica, through CID Entertainment, will also be selling a limited amount of “Wherever I May Roam Black Tickets” that give fans floor access to every stop on the tour (provided they give at least 48 hours notice). Only 250 of these tickets will be sold.

Pre-sale tickets for the next leg of the WorldWired Tour will go on sale February 27th, and tickets will be available to the general public at 10 am local time on March 2nd. Watch the announcement video and check out a full list of dates below.
