VIDEO: Metallica perform Ride The Lightning at Sonisphere Switzerland

Metallica performed “Ride The Lightning” during their July 4th set at Sonisphere in Basel, Switzerland, and the band are now sharing video from the event.

The footage also includes the band warming up in the tuning room, as well and "Sad But True” from the show.

The Basel stop was one of the final few shows of the group’s “By Request” European tour, which saw fans vote for 17 of the 18 songs Metallica would play at each concert.

The trek wrapped up on July 13 in Istanbul, Turkey.

Up next, Metallica will perform at Heavy Montreal on August 9.
