Metallica Sets Dates For U.S. Tour

After announcing last week that they would be joined by Jerry Cantrell and Days of the New on the road, Metallica has now firmed up dates for its headlining summer tour.

The band, which headlined Lollapalooza two years ago, is steering clear of this summer's many package tour offerings and took to their official website (at www.metclub.com) to reveal the dates. A Metallica spokesperson confirms that the band is heading out for its own U.S. tour which will kick off on June 24 in West Palm Beach, Florida.

The band will then creep out of the South and wind across the U.S. well into September. Here's where you can catch them, according to the Metclub:
