VIDEO: Metallica rock 1986 classics in Mexico City

A couple of 1986 classics are featured in the latest Metallica video package from Mexico City.

Last week, the band wrapped up their series of seven concerts in Mexico, and they are continuing to share behind the scenes and concert footage, including material filmed at their fifth show, on August 4.

Fans can check out video of Metallica rocking two tracks from 1986’s “Master Of Puppets” album - “Leper Messiah” in the Tuning Room and “Welcome Home (Sanitarium)” from the show.

Released March 3, 1986, “Master Of Puppets” was Metallica’s third studio album and major label debut. “Puppets” peaked at number 29 on the Billboard 200 and was the group's first record to be certified gold for sales of over 500,000 copies. This was done without any radio airplay or the release of a music video. The album has since been certified six times platinum by the RIAA.

Metallica have two more summer concerts on their schedule: they’ll play Edmonton this Friday and Vancouver on August 24.
