VIDEO: Metallica headline Rock In Rio

Metallica headlined the Rock In Rio festival in Brazil on September 19 and video of the band’s full 2-hour-plus performance is available.

The veteran metal band topped Saturday’s bill at the 30th anniversary event, which also included Motley Crue, Korn and Royal Blood, among others.

The Rock In Rio date marks Metallica’s final scheduled live show of 2015.

In between live dates, the group have been in the studio this past year working on the follow-up to 2008’s “Death Magnetic.”

In April, guitarist Kirk Hammett revealed that he lost hundreds of riff ideas for the band’s next album when he lost his phone late last year.

“I lost my iPhone containing two hundred and fifty musical ideas,” said Hammett. “And I was crushed. It didn't get backed up. And when it happened, I was bummed out for about two or three days. I walked into the house. My wife saw me and she said, 'Uh-oh, what's wrong? Did you get a phone call from a relative?' I said, 'No.' She said, 'What's going on?' I told her, and she understood.”

"I just plain lost it,” he added. “I can't find it. I'm still looking for it to this day. I just set it somewhere and… It still might turn up. I'm hoping it will. To try to remember those riffs…? I can only remember, like, eight of 'em. So I just chalked it down to maybe it just wasn't meant to be and I'll just move forward with it.”
