Need a shot of adrenaline to take the mundane out of Monday? I can’t think of a more powerful pumping source than a night with Metallica. The band’s “Worldwired” Tour arrives at PNC Arena in Raleigh on Monday, January 28, 2019. Hailed as one of hard rock/heavy metal ‘s best live show performances ever, Metallica’s foursome is unforgiving in this quest: Let singer, songwriter and rhythm guitarist James Hetfield, drummer Lars Ulrich, lead guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo rock you.
Metallica, formed in 1981 in Los Angeles, has released ten studio albums (the last six of which debuted at number one). They have also recorded and released four live albums and one cover album. Metallica has proudly and deservedly earned nine Grammy Awards out of 23 nominations! Their most recent compilation, Hardwired to Self Destruct was released in 2016.
If you like pulling out of the mire and catching fire, purchase your ticket now to get hardwired at PNC Arena on January 28, 2019. -Sheryl Bryant
Following last summer’s 25 date sold-out stadium run, this year Metallica is bringing the in-the-round production currently being seen in European arenas. The “WorldWired Tour,” produced by LiveNation, treks across 34 North American cities in 2018-2019.
The Fall/Winter tour will mark a few firsts for the band. Each show will get rolling with the “Light It Up” pre-show party hosted by their very good friend Jim Breuer. Jim, along with a DJ to get the night rocking with some great tunes, hits the stage before the band with comedy, fan interaction, giveaways and much more.
Of course, some things don’t change! As they have been doing for most of the “WorldWired” shows, every ticket purchased includes your choice of a standard physical or standard digital copy of “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.” Keep it for yourself or gift it to a friend or family member. You’ll receive info via e-mail after your ticket purchase on how to obtain your copy.*
Metallica continue to raise funds for their All Within My Hands Foundation, which supports a cross-section of national, local and Bay Area charities, music education programs and local food banks. Continuing their collaboration with Crowdrise, Metallica encourage you to make a donation when purchasing tickets to the upcoming shows and each time you donate, you’ll be entered to win tickets, pre-show party passes, meet and greet passes, and one lucky winner will be flown to the last show on the tour. For more information, visit CrowdRise.com.
**Every ticket purchased through official outlets includes your choice of a standard physical or standard digital copy of “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.” Fans should expect to receive information from Warner Music Artist Services on how to redeem their albums WITHIN 21 business days after their purchase. Full details of how you can gift the album, should you have already purchased, will be given on the redemption pass.
