Metallica’s Hardwired… To Self-Destruct debuted a few years ago, but the legendary rockers have almost managed to repeat history as the record has climbed back into the Top 10, ascending to No. 2 last week. Hardwired… To Self-Destruct was topped only by rapper XXXTentacion’s sophomore album, ?, which moved 131,000 units. In late February, Metallica announced the second North American leg of their ‘WorldWired’ tour and ticket sales helped to lift the album to the No. 2 chart position. Ticket purchases included an album redemption offer where fans had the choice of receiving a copy of the album. Metallica will be playing only select North American appearances between September 02 and March 13 of next year. You can see the full list of dates here.
