Metallica brings WorldWired Tour to Wichita

Posted: Updated:

They dropped a few hints this past weekend and now it is official. Metallica’s WorldWired Tour will make a stop in Wichita next year.

Metallica is kicking off the tour September 3, 2018 in Madison, Wisconsin, and they'll be in Wichita om March 4, 2019. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. this Friday through Select-A-Seat, and they'll cost $65 or $135. Pre-sale starts at 9 a.m. Tuesday. Click here for details.

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. 

And if you love to travel and one show just isn’t enough, then perhaps the "Wherever I May Roam Black Ticket" is for you. You may purchase one ticket that will allow you floor access to any Metallica show on the 2018/2019 North American tour.
