VIDEO: Metallica performs Whiskey In The Jar at Leeds festival

Metallica are sharing footage of a performance of “Whiskey in The Jar” at the Leeds festival on August 30.

“I’d like to dedicate this next song to a fallen soldier, Mr. Clifford Lee Burton,” said James Hetfield as he introduced the traditional Irish song covered by Thin Lizzy. “Who lives with us all and is here in spirit, and this is from his favourite band. This is going to make you bounce. Beware.”

The band recorded the tune for their 1998 compilation album, “Garage Inc.”

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

The Leeds appearance was the sixth and final date on a short run across Europe that saw the band playing a mix of headline and festival shows.

Last week, Metallica headlined the Rock In Rio festival in Brazil, marking their final scheduled live show of 2015.
