Metallica to Live Stream Final North American ‘WorldWired’ Show
Shortly after Metallica released Hardwired... To Self-Destruct last year, fans began speculating that the thrash titans would be supporting the album with a North American stadium tour. The rumors proved to be true and now this leg of their "WorldWired" tour is coming to a close with quite the bang.
Fans at the Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton in Alberta, Canada won't be the only ones watching Metallica's concert tonight (Aug. 16) as the band will be streaming the show live for all to see at a dedicated webcast website and on their YouTube channel. Tune in at 8:45PM Mountain Time (10:45PM ET / 9:45PM CT / 7:45PM PT). You can watch the show in the player above.
