The 2017 dates on the "WorldWired" tour, which included stadium shows across the U.S., grossed $110.3 million in North America and $152.8 million worldwide.

METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich said that the band is relishing its staying power now more than ever. "It was, like, 'Holy fuck, people really still care about this band in ways that you stopped taking for granted literally decades ago," he told Rolling Stone. "It was very inspiring and kind of eye-opening... Doing a stadium run seemed like the perfect thing on the back of how well this record has been received and all the good will that's out there in METALLICA's world right now."
