The South American shows are the first 2020 dates of the WorldWired tour to be announced. The trek, which is in support of Metallica's latest album, Self-Destruct, began all the way back in 2016.

Metallica is currently on tour in Europe, and will return to the U.S. in September for two orchestra-accompanied shows in San Francisco, which will be shot for the upcoming concert film S&M2. They'll then head to Australia and New Zealand for a tour with support from Slipknot.
