VIDEO: Metallica perform Master Of Puppets classic in Rome

Metallica performed the “Master Of Puppets” classic “Welcome Home (Sanitarium)” as part of the summer-long Rock In Rome festival in Italy on July 1st, and the band are now sharing video from the event.

The footage also includes the band warming up in the tuning room, as well as "Blackened” from the show.

Metallica were joined by Volbeat and Alice In Chains at the show, one of 20 such summer concerts in the Italian capital.

1986’s “Master Of Puppets” was the band’s third album and final one with bassist Cliff Burton, who died tragically in a tour bus accident in Sweden in September of that year.

The album peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard 200 on its way to selling more than 6 million copies in the States alone.

Metallica will wrap up their “By Request” European tour on July 13 in Istanbul, Turkey.
