(2008–2010)

World Magnetic Tour is a current concert tour by American heavy metal band Metallica in support of the group's ninth studio album, Death Magnetic, which was released in September 2008.

The tour officially kicked off in October 2008 with a tour of the U.S. and Canada, following three European promotional dates in September and two U.S. rehearsal shows. The North American leg, their first since the Madly in Anger with the World Tour in 2004, began in Glendale, Arizona and wrapped up in late December in Oakland, California. A second North American leg followed in early January 2009, starting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and finishing up in Newark, New Jersey in early February.

In February 2009, the band commenced a European tour. The group played three rounds of batches of dates, resuming in late March and then returning again in May. In between the first and second legs, the band performed a small promotional show in Austin, Texas, U.S. to support the video game release Guitar Hero: Metallica. The European legs began in Nottingham, U.K. and eventually culminated in Cologne, Germany.

In June 2009, the group played three dates in Mexico City. The shows reached a total capacity of 152,000 and were the band's first shows in Mexico in ten years. Later in the month, the group returned to Europe, performing a mixture of indoor and outdoor shows, and festival appearances. The leg featured headline slots at the first iterations of the Sonisphere Festival, a new festival event which took place in Finland, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the U.K.. The leg began in Helsinki and finished in early August in Knebworth, U.K..

In September 2009, the band kicked off a third North American leg, beginning in Nashville, Tennessee and finishing in mid-November in New York City. The act resumed touring duties in December, performing five dates in Western U.S..

In January 2010, the band headed to South America, playing mostly outdoor shows. The leg kicked off in Lima and finished in São Paulo, Brazil. In March, the group returned to Mexico, performing in Guadalajara and Monterrey. The leg continued on with additional dates in South America, as well as shows in Central America and Puerto Rico.

In April 2010, the act will once again return to Europe, beginning with two dates in Oslo. The leg includes appearances at the 2010 editions of the Sonisphere Festival, which will feature exclusive billings of the "Big Four" of thrash metal: Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax, as well as Metallica. The events have been confirmed in Poland, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Greece, Romania and Turkey. The band will also return to Israel, for the third time in its career.

The dates in Mexico City were recorded and later released on CD, DVD and Blu-ray with the title, Orgullo, Pasión y Gloria ("Pride, Passion and Glory"). Additionally, the show in Nîmes, France was filmed and subsequently released on DVD and Blu-ray entitled, Français Pour Une Nuit ("French for One Night"). Both titles were released to retail in November 2009 only in their respective markets (Latin America and France) and through the band's official website.
