PRO VIDEO: Metallica perform 1984 classic at Rock On The Range

Metallica performed their 1984 classic, “For Whom The Bell Tolls”, at the Rock On The Range festival in Columbus, OH on May 21, and the band are sharing professional footage from the event.

The tune was the second single from the band’s second album, “Ride The Lightning”, which peaked at No. 48 on the Billboard 200 on its way to US sales of more than 6 million copies.

Metallica closed out the annual 3-day event in Columbus on a weekend that also featured performances by Korn, The Offspring, Alter Bridge, Bush and Live, among others.

The festival appearance marked the sixth show of the group’s North American tour in support of 2016’s “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.”

The project was named Top Rock Album Of The Year at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas on May 21.

The band’s tenth studio release took top prize ahead of fellow nominees Radiohead, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Lumineers and Twenty One Pilots.

Currently enjoying a two-week break from the road, Metallica will resume the trek at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, MO on June 4.
