Metallica released several deep cuts from their 2014 “By Request Tour,” allowing fans to curate setlist through online voting. For the Metallica’s weekly installment of their #MetallicaMondays concert series, the group released the full performance from their Lima, Peru concert on March 20th, 2014.
The free streaming started on May 25th at 8 p.m. ET via the band’s Facebook page and YouTube channel and will be available via on-demand on YouTube.
The 18-track set featured the band’s legendary hits such as “The Unforgiven,” “One” and “Enter Sandman,” but “Sad But True” and “Nothing Else Matters” were left out and didn’t make the cut. “Tune in for free tonight to see what songs the crowd voted into this unique setlist,” the band wrote Monday on Instagram, and reminds their fans to “#StayHome” amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Metallica began their weekly series in late March by releasing their 2019 appearance at Meath, Ireland’s Slane Castle.
“While we’re all doing our part and staying home, we find ourselves missing live music, so how about we dive back into a few of our favorite shows at a socially responsible distance?” the band said in a statement announcing #MetallicaMondays. “Not to sound too cheesy, but now more than ever, we’re in this together, and staying connected is how we’ll get through it. With that in mind, we’re bringing a series of Live Metallica shows right to your couch!”
Metallica were forced to postponed and reschedule many of their tour dates due to the global health crisis, but however, they did recently joined together for a socially distanced performance of “Blackened” which you can watch below:
