Metallica’s James Hetfield has revealed that the band are planning to tour for at least the next two years.

The band currently have 14 live shows on four different continents listed on their website, taking place between now and April 2017. However, they have yet to announce a full world tour.

“We’ve booked out two years, at least,” Hetfield told Linea Rock. “So, I can’t predict the future, but we start there and hopefully there’s more than that. And I would like to make some new music sooner than eight years, for sure,” Hetfield added in the new interview. “There’s such a pleasure and a joy of hearing your new music and having other people hear it. So we don’t wanna wait that long.”

Meanwhile, James Hetfield recently discussed what the band’s late bassist Cliff Burton would have thought of their breakthrough ’90s material, which came after his death.

“Well, I certainly would have thought there would have been some resistance, for sure,” said Hetfield. “I think Cliff would have probably interjected some different stuff, getting his bass heard and some more musically challenging things, probably.”

Hetfield has also revealed recently that he is a big fan of Adele, saying: “I love her, she’s unbelievable and blows my mind.”
