VIDEO: Metallica rehearse for North American tour in Baltimore

Metallica streamed the final rehearsal before the launch of their North American tour via Facebook Live from M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, MD on May 9, and official video from the event is available online.

hennemusic carried the feed live as the band roared through four songs before about 300 MetClub fan members who won access to the 'soundcheck party.'

The group delivered the “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct” single “Atlas, Rise!”, the 1984 classic “For Whom The Bell Tolls”, the new single “Now That We’re Dead”, and the 1986 thrash classic “Battery.”

"Thanks for tuning in to 'Now That We're Live!',” says the band. “We'll see you this summer as the WorldWired Tour treks across North America!”

Metallica will launch their first run across the continent in eight years at the same venue in Baltimore on May 10.

The group will be joined by Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat, with Gojira on board for select dates.

“Hardwired…To Self-Destruct” recently achieved platinum status in the US for sales of 1 million copies.
