Metallica release Lollapalooza performance

Metallica headlined Lollapalooza in Chicago over the weekend and the band have just released audio of their full 21-song set.

The three-day event at Chicago’s Grant Park saw the metal veterans top the bill on Saturday, while Paul McCartney closed Friday and Florence + The Machine wrapped up the weekend on Sunday evening.

The group are previewing the package with audio of their 1984 classic, “Creeping Death.”

Metallica’s Lollapalooza set is available at livemetallica.com

The band will launch a short series of European shows in Bergen, Norway on August 20; the trek includes appearances at both of the UK’s Reading and Leeds festivals at the end of the month.

Metallica will perform a pair of historic concerts in Quebec City next month.

On September 14, the band will play the final event at Colisee Pepsi, a hockey arena first opened in 1949. Metallica have played seven shows in the arena, including two that were filmed for 2012’s “Quebec Magnetic” DVD release.

On September 16, the band will play the first event at the brand new Centre Vidéotron.

“Always one of our favorite places to visit, Quebec City also has a long history of being the home to some of the most rabid 'Tallica fans anywhere,” says the band. “It only seems fitting that we share this special passing of the torch with you!

“Each show will be a completely different experience right down to where we set up the stage. Look for one night with the classic end stage, the other in the round, different set lists and even different opening bands . . . two totally different Met experiences in one 48 hour period!”

The group have been in the studio this year working on the follow-up to 2008’s “Death Magnetic.”
