Metallica’s drummer Lars Ulrich said that next year the band will start a big stadium tour across America for the first time since 2009.
Ulrich talked about upcoming touring plans of the band:
“We did 180 shows on the Death Magnetic tour in two-week periods over three years. That’s what works for us. We’re going to start pretty much full-on touring in January and are looking to figure out what we’re doing in North America, but there will definitely be some pretty extensive touring in America.”
Metallica will go to on tour in support of the long-awaited album ‘Hardwired … To Self-Destruct’, which will be released on November 18 via the band’s own label Blackened Recordings.
Ulrich said that he wants to perform new songs live:
“Some of the stuff on Death Magnetic was pretty cerebral. You had to really think about what the next crazy part is that was coming up. Some of the songs from the new record are a little more physical. It’s gonna be a lot of fun to play this. Also, some of these songs are a little shorter than the ones on Death Magnetic. I think it’s gonna be a lot of fun to throw many of these songs in, but we’ll change the setlist every night like we always do.”
