METALLICA has launched a new concert series, “#MetallicaMondays”, where the band will stream the complete video of a METALLICA live show for fans on the group’s YouTube channel and on Facebook every week. The first concert to be shared was recorded on June 8, 2019 at the iconic venue Slane Castle in Meath, Ireland and can be seen below.
In 2000, METALLICA received a Grammy in the “Best Hard Rock Performance” category for its rendition of the song “Whisky In The Jar” by Thin Lizzy, which featured the late Phil Lynott who James Hetfield admired greatly.
After the Slane concert, METALLICA frontman James Hetfield posted a photo on Instagram of him and the statue of Lynott in Dublin. “Much respect and love to my favorite songwriter, Mr. Phil Lynott,” James wrote in an accompanying caption.
On Monday, METALLICA announced that its South American tour, which was originally planned for April, has been postponed until December. In addition, the band’s appearances at three Danny Wimmer Presents-produced festivals in May have been canceled: Epicenter in Charlotte, Welcome To Rockville in Daytona and Sonic Temple in Columbus.
