VIDEO: Metallica present pro-shot footage of California Big 4 jam

Metallica know how to get a job done.

The metal icons continue to offer goodies to their fans: from pre-show meet & greets, to pro-shot footage of their shows, they understand and celebrate the artist/fan relationship.

Take the latest offering from Metallica: pro-shot footage of some of the band’s day at the first Big 4 show on U.S. soil, this past Saturday in California.

Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax rocked more than 50,000 fans at the Empire Polo Grounds to its core, just a week after the Coachella Festival took place on the same site in Indio.

Official Metallica.com footage of Metallica's pre-show meet-and-greet, tuning-room jam and performance at the show has now surfaced….check it out below.
