The latest archival presentation, filmed at the Foro Sol in Mexico City, marks the end of a five-month period of the metal monoliths.

Since March, Metallica has been reliving shows from 1983 to 2019 around the world through Metallica Mondays, in an attempt to entertain fans during the coronavirus lockdown.

“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?”, said Metallica at the time. “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!”

Previous installments have seen footage from some of their most powerful concerts, including a 1991 Michigan show in support of ‘The Black Album,’ a set at New York’s Yankee Stadium in 2011 as part of the ‘Big Four’ tour. , and their 2013 full concert in Melbourne.

To commemorate the series finale, the band also announced a limited edition ‘tour’ t-shirt, listing all the weekly broadcasts on the back. Available for just five days, the merchandise can be found through the band’s website.
