The Madly in Anger with the World Tour was a year-long concert tour by Metallica that took place in 2003 and 2004, in connection with their St. Anger album.

After the June 2003 release of St. Anger, Metallica first made some festival and summer stadium appearances as part of the Summer Sanitarium 2003 Tour rubric; those were the first shows to feature new bassist Robert Trujillo. But the full tour did not properly begin until November 6, 2003, starting at Yoyogi Taiikukan in Tokyo, and running through November 28, 2004, concluding at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.

A new feature of the Madly in Anger tour was that nearly every performance was professionally recorded and sold online. The download series featured each available show in both FLAC and MP3 formats. Drummer Lars Ulrich made a statement advising fans that the series was a continuation of the band's pro-taping stance which was taken in the 1990s.[1][2]

When drummer Lars Ulrich fell ill before the tour's Download Festival appearance on June 6, 2004, an assortment of temporary fill-ins were recruited, including Dave Lombardo of Slayer, Joey Jordison of Slipknot, and Flemming Larsen, Ulrich's drum technician.[3]

The tour was especially popular in Scandinavia, where stadium dates were held and caused Metallica's entire back catalogue to appear on the record charts.[4]

One of the most famous incidents during the tour was in Prague, Czech Republic. It was Slipknot's last date supporting Metallica, so 20 Metallica members and crew went on stage during the Slipknot set in Slipknot masks.[citation needed]

Set list variety during the tour was perhaps greater than usual for the band, aided by reduction in the number of St. Anger selections played down to sometimes one by the Fall 2004 leg.[5] Performance rarities were to be found as well,[6] as were the revival of several numbers from the ...And Justice for All album, previously considered too difficult or long to play well live, such as Dyers Eve, which debuted on March 5, 2004, in Los Angeles, California, 16 years after it was recorded.[7]

According to Pollstar, Madly in Anger with the World was the fourth-highest grossing tour of 2004, reaping $60,500,000 in ticket sales.[8]
