VIDEO: Metallica rock Seek And Destroy at third Vancouver show

After two shows in Vancouver last month, Metallica surprised area fans by announcing a last-minute, third date.

Metallica had been filming their summer live shows for the group’s upcoming 3D movie, and the band added a third show to help with the production.

Metallica put tickets on sale for $5, with proceeds to benefit the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.

The third night was not designed to run like a standard Metallica concert, as the band explained when it announced the show.

“Here's how it works: We will be running though the full live show one last time at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, but unlike the Friday and Saturday shows, there will be lots of breaks in it to allow for cameras and lights to be repositioned as the director sees fit,” said Metallica.

"You may have heard us mention just once or twice (or 700 times!) that a Metalli-3D movie is in the works... we now need your help to finish filming it!! This Monday, August 27, we will be shooting what we hope will be the final live portion of the movie and have our last chance for quite some time to play on the gigantic, massive over-the-top stage that we rolled out in Mexico City, took to Edmonton and end our film excursion/mini tour with in Vancouver. As we have been saying a lot recently we would love to have you join us and be a part of our movie making adventure.”

Metallica are now sharing footage from the third Vancouver date, on August 27, including video of the tuning room, pre-show huddle and “Seek And Destroy” from the concert.
