VIDEO: Metallica perform Sad But True in Moscow

Metallica are sharing footage of a performance of their 1993 single, “Sad But True”, from an August 27 show at Olympijskiy Stadium in Moscow, Russia.

The band’s video highlight package also includes drummer Lars Ulrich and bassist Robert Trujillo in the meet and greet as well as the group warming up in the Tuning Room before the show.

The Moscow stop was the fourth date on a short run across Europe that saw the band playing a mix of headline and festival shows.

“Sad But True” was the fifth and final single from Metallica’s self-titled 1991 record – known as The Black Album.

The project went on to sell 30 million copies sold worldwide – including 16 million in the States alone.

A new book on The Black Album by author David Masciotra will be published as part of Bloomsbury's 33 1/3 Series on September 24.

Masciotra gives readers unprecedented insight into the story behind the iconic album through interviews with James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, Jason Newsted and producer Bob Rock.

“The book is a must read for Metallica, metal, and hard rock fans,” says Masciotra, “as I will give up close and personal details, received personally from the band, into the making of The Black Album, and I will examine the importance of Metallica’s music, along with the philosophical depth it possesses.”

The “Black” Album continues to be the best-selling release of the US Nielsen SoundScan era, which started in 1991.
