The Detroit Tigers won't be the only ones rockin' Comerica Park this summer.
Heavy rockers Metallica have announced a July 12 date at the stadium as part of its WorldWired 2017 North American Tour. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 17, with pre-sales for fan club members starting Tuesday, Feb. 14. Each ticket includes a CD or digital download copy of the group's 2016 album "Hardwired...To Self-Destruct."
The show is part of Metallica's first North American tour in nine years, and it's the group's first Detroit appearance since it staged its Orion Music + More Festival June 8-9, 2013 on Belle Isle. Metallica played twice that weekend, including a full performance of its 1983 debut album "Kill 'Em All."
Metallica played with Lady Gaga at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night, Feb. 12, but the performance was marred when frontman James Hetfield's microphone didn't work and when actress Laverne Cox failed to introduce the band by name. Metallica was nominated for Best Rock Song but lost to the late David Bowie.
