Metallica have issued official live footage of their cover of the Irish traditional song, “Whiskey In The Jar”, from a 2016 show in Minneapolis, MN in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.
The band first recorded the tune for their 1998 compilation album, “Garage Inc.”
“Happy St. Patrick's Day!,” posted Metallica.
The group are next scheduled to perform at Lollapalooza festivals in Brazil (March 25), Argentina (March 31) and Chile (April 1) before launching a 25-show summer stadium tour of North America at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, MD on May 10.
Metallica will then bring their WorldWired tour in support of “Hardwired…To Self Destruct” to Europe for dates this fall and in the spring of 2018 (see dates below the video).
The arena trek – with special guests Kvelertak – begins in September with two 2-week runs starting with a pair of shows in Amsterdam before returning for an extended run next February.
