There's no need to self-destruct! The wait is over. Metallica tickets are now on sale for their major summer tour featuring Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat, with Gojira signing on to play select dates as well.

General public ticketing starts today (Friday, Feb. 17) at 10AM local time in each market, which means you can get your hands on tickets to what should be the concert event of the summer. Each ticket purchased will come with a copy of Metallica's Hardwired ... To Self-Destruct album, available as either a physical CD or as a digital download. Visit Ticketmaster to get your hands on tickets to one of the shows.

Metallica are already off to a hot start with Hardwired ... to Self Destruct. The lead single Hardwired was recently nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Song, while the tracks "Moth Into Flame" and "Atlas, Rise" have also skyrocketed up the rock radio chats. The band shot videos for every song on the album, and they've already introduced a number of the new tracks into their live performances, so you'll definitely want to check out the new show.

Meanwhile, Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat both enjoyed major successes in 2016 with their albums The Stage and Seal the Deal & Let's Boogie. Both bands are just hitting their stride in support of their respective discs. As stated, Gojira will be on board for shows toward the end of the trek. The band just received a pair of Grammy nominations for their critically acclaimed Magma album, a disc Kirk Hammett stated was "an incredible piece of art," so you know they've got the Metallica stamp of approval.
