METALLICA has posted another concert video for “#MetallicaMondays”, where the band streams a complete live show via the group’s YouTube channel and on Facebook page every Monday. The kinda cool thing with the latest concert is that it was recorded exactly 20 years ago, on frontman James Hetfield’s 37th birthday, on August 3, 2000 at Starplex Amphitheater in Dallas, Texas.
The band’s setlist was as follows:
01. Creeping Death
02. For Whom The Bell Tolls
03. Seek And Destroy
04. Fade To Black
06. Sad But True
07. No Leaf Clover
08. King Nothing
11. Nothing Else Matters
12. I Disapper
14. Turn The Page (Bob Seger cover)
15. Enter Sandman
16. Last Caress (MISFITS cover)
17. So What (ANTI-NOWHERE LEAGUE cover)
18. Die, Die My Darling
Back in March, METALLICA announced that their South American tour, which was originally planned for April, has been postponed until December due to covid-19. In addition, the band’s appearances at five Danny Wimmer Presents-produced festivals in May, September and October have all been canceled.
So in the meantime while we continue to don our face masks and avoid any sort of public contact with anybody, at least we have Youtube videos of concerts from 20 friggin’ years ago.
Better than nothing.
