Metallica have been reliving some of their past shows from around the world as part of Metallica Mondays, launched in March in a bid to entertain fans during the coronavirus lockdown. Previous instalments have seen the band re-share footage from some of their most powerful concerts, such as a 2012 performance where they played ‘The Black Album’ in full, a 1991 show in Michigan in support of ‘The Black Album’ and a show at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium last year.

Recently, Metallica’s 2017 ‘Rock On The Range’ festival performance was broadcast as part of the ‘Offstage With DWP’ concert series.
