Metallica's US Tour Rumored To Be Joined By Avenged Sevenfold & Volbeat

February 6, 2017

What may very well be one of the biggest tours of 2017, Metallica announced that they would be planning a large stadium summer tour. Now rumors are floating around suggesting that both Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat will be supporting Metallica for at least twenty dates. The official tour lineups are expected to be announced in late February 2017.

"We're very excited about it because it's been a long, long time since we've done a proper American tour," says guitarist Kirk Hammet. "I mean, we've done European tours, Asian tours, South American tours, but we have not done a proper American tour as of late. So we're very, very excited about it, and we're very excited to be able to do it bringing new material to all our fans out there."
