For this week’s #MetallicaMondays show, they paid tribute to one of their earliest trip.
“We dug through the dusty, old VHS tapes in Lars’ vault to uncover this show, which was not only the first time we played in Bogotá, but anywhere in Colombia,” a statement from the band’s says of their May 2, 1999 show during their Garage Remains the Same Tour, which was in support of the Garage Inc. covers album from the previous year.
Previously Metallica dusted off some deep cuts on their 2014 “By Request Tour,” which allowed fans to curate each setlist through online voting. For the band’s latest installment of their #MetallicaMondays concert series, they’re streaming the full performance from March 20th in Lima, Peru.
The free stream begins at 8 p.m. ET via the band’s Facebook page and YouTube channel. It will also be available on-demand later on via YouTube.(Rolling Stone)
Though the 18-track set featured many of the band’s signature tracks (including “The Unforgiven,” “One” and “Enter Sandman”), staples like “Sad But True” and “Nothing Else Matters” didn’t make the final cut. “Tune in for free tonight to see what songs the crowd voted into this unique setlist,” the band wrote Monday on Instagram, reminding fans to “#StayHome” amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“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!”
