Metallica’s “Worldwired Tour” will make its way back to Europe in 2019 for a late spring and summer run featuring special guests Ghost and Bokassa in support

The trek kicks off May 1st in Lisbon, Portugal, and runs through an August 25th show in Mannheim, Germany. The 25-show tour is broken up into four mini legs of six to seven dates per month, with significant breaks in between legs.

Among the stops will be Metallica’s first shows in Trondheim, Norway; Hämeenlinna, Finland; and Tartu, Estonia. The band will also be playing the famed Slane Castle in Dublin, Ireland.

Tickets for the tour go on sale to fan club members tomorrow (September 25th) and to the general public on Friday (September 28th). Presales are listed in detail here.

As with Metallica’s current North American trek, the European shows will be available as a free MP3 download to ticket holders via LiveMetallica.com.

Ghost, meanwhile, will be supporting Metallica on a full-scale tour for the first time, after playing festivals with the band in the past. Prior to the trek with Metallica, Ghost will be headlining tours of their own in North American this fall and Europe in the late winter.
