Metallica performed their 2016 single, “Atlas, Rise!”, at NRG Stadium in Houston, TX on June 11, and the band are sharing professional footage from the event.

The second single from “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct” topped the US Billboard Mainstream Rock chart upon its release last fall as the band were playing warm-up dates for the WorldWired tour in South America.

The Houston date marked the start of the second month of Metallica’s summer North American tour, which kicked off at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, MD on May 10.

The stadium shows will wrap up in Edmonton, AB on August 16 before the group heads to Europe for a fall arena tour.

That trek will begin with a September 2 show at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen – rescheduled from February due to illness – before playing Amsterdam on September 4.
