Metallica performed their 1991 classic, “Enter Sandman”, at Petco Park in San Diego, CA on August 6 and the band are sharing professional footage from the show.

The track was the lead 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.

The San Diego stop marked one of the final dates on Metallica’s summer stadium tour of North America in support of 2016’s “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.”

The run 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.

Metallica had the honor of opening the new venue in drummer Lars Ulrich’s homeland during a series of shows in February.

The band’s planned four-show run became three dates after they were forced to postpone the second concert on February 5 after frontman James Hetfield was put on vocal rest by doctor’s due to an illness.
