The band will perform five dates at arenas across the UK, visiting London, Glasgow, Manchester and Birmingham from October 22, 2017.

The European leg of the group's worldwide tour will kick off in Amsterdam in September and finish in Finland in May, 2018.

The tour follows the release of the band's tenth studio album, Hardwired... to Self-Destruct , which was released last November, reaching number 2 in the UK album charts and topping the Billboard charts in America.

Earlier this year the band performed with pop superstar Lady Gaga at the 59th Grammy Awards performing an energetic take on 'Moth Into Flame'.

However, the performance was marred by technical difficulties, and lead singer James Hatfield's mic stopped working leaving gaps in the audio.
