Metallica have added an extensive number of dates in North America as they continue to perform as part of 'The WorldWired Tour'
Metallica have announced a North American tour.
The Heavy metal titans - who have been touring relentlessly since the release of 'Hardwired... to Self-Destruct' in 2016 - will continue to rock on their 'The WorldWired Tour' much into 2019.
The run kicks off on September 2 at the Kohl Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and will wrap at March 13 at the Van Andel Arena in Michigan.
It follows the news that the 'Enter Sandman' hitmakers - who are currently on tour in Europe - will be awarded the 2018 Polar Music Prize.
The Grammy-Award winning rockers will receive the prestigious award, classed as the Nobel Prize for music, alongside the ANIM (Afghanistan National Institute Of Music) and its founder Dr Ahmad Sarmast at a ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden on June 14.
Each year, the Polar Music Prize honours two Laureates, one from the contemporary world and one from the classical, and is awarded for significant achievements in music.
The Laureates also receives one million Swedish Kronor prize money (roughly £90,000) each.
James Hetfield, singer, guitarist and co-founder of Metallica - who is joined by Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo in the band - said: "I feel very honoured to be in such great company with the others who have accepted the Polar Music Prize. As myself and as Metallica I'm grateful to have this as part of our legacy, our history. Thank you."
