Metallica have covered ABBA’s ‘Dancing Queen’

The band gave a unique spin on the megahit in Sweden

Metallica have covered the classic ABBA track ‘Dancing Queen’ – check out the performance below.

The Metal outfit are currently out on their mammoth ‘Worldwired’ tour, which began at the end of last year. Hitting Stockholm earlier this week, the band paid tribute to Sweden’s greatest pop exports.

Kirk Hammett and Rob Trujillo’s rendition of the dazzling 1976 hit saw them adopt a funkier style – stepping away from the usual heavy distortion.

The band are currently covering tunes relevant to the city they’re playing in each night. As part of their set in Norway, they offered up a version of A-Ha’s ‘Take On Me’.

Meanwhile, ABBA have announced the release of their first new music in 35 years. The group described their reunion as  “an extremely joyful experience!”

Metallica’s ‘Worldwired’ run is set to conclude in Helsinki this Friday (May 11). They’ll resume touring in North America from September, with the run continuing into 2019.
