Metallica perform Master Of Puppets classic in Paraguay

Metallica have released footage of the “Master Of Puppets” album classic, “Welcome Home (Sanitarium)”, from their March 24th concert in Asuncion, Paraguay.

Also included in a video package from the band’s first show in the country is the group warming up in the Tuning Room as well as "Sad But True" from the event.

Metallica wrapped up a South American tour this past weekend, and will bring their “request” show to Europe for dates beginning May 28 in Helsinki, Finland.

Before the European trek begins, though, Metallica will be among the list of performers who will honor Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne when he receives the Stevie Ray Vaughan Award at the 10th anniversary MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on May 12.

Osbourne will be recognized for his dedication and support of the MusiCares MAP Fund, and for his commitment to helping other addicts with the addiction recovery process.

Joe Walsh will present Ozzy with the award, which Metallica’s James Hetfield received in 2006; previous honorees include Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chris Cornell, Alice Cooper and Jerry Cantrell.

Ozzy and his touring band will perform at the event with special guest Slash.

The MusiCares MAP Fund allows access to addiction recovery treatment and sober living resources for members of the music community as well as offering support groups for working and touring members.
