Metallica are sharing a performance video of their 1991 classic, “Sad But True,” from an August 20 show at the new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, MN.

The track was the fifth single of the group’s self-titled record, commonly known as the “Black” album, the band’s first to top the US charts on its way to sales of 16 million in the States and more than 30 million worldwide.

hennemusic delivered the Minneapolis show live as Metallica 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 – which can be heard in full here – 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 also 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.

Metallica will officially launch the first leg of the Hardwired world tour in San Juan, Puerto Rico on October 26 as part of a series of dates in Latin America.
