Metallica streamed their performance at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, MN on August 20 and audio of the complete concert is available.

hennemusic delivered the live show as the band headlined the first rock concert at the new home of the Minnesota Vikings before a reported crowd of 50,000 fans.

The 19-song, 2.5 hour set opened with the group’s 1984 classic, “Creeping Death”, and mixed tunes from their entire catalog before closing with the finale of 1991’s “Enter Sandman.”

The show saw Metallica perform the live debut of “Hardwired,” the lead track from their forthcoming album, “Hardwired…To Self Destruct.”

Due November 18, the two-disc set was produced by Greg Fidelman, James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich and presents a dozen new songs and more than 80 minutes of music.

“It really does exist!,” says the band. “Hardwired… represents the next phase of our journey as Metallica and we are so excited to share it with you.”

“Hardwired…To Self Destruct” will be available in a variety of formats, including regular and deluxe CDs and vinyl alongside a digital release. The band will also release a box-set edition containing the deluxe versions of the CD, vinyl and digital as well as lithographs and LP-themed buttons.

Metallica will next perform at the 2016 Global Citizen Festival in New York’s Central Park on September 24.
