Metallica performed their 1986 thrash metal classic, “Leper Messiah”, at the O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic on April 2, and the band are streaming professional footage from the show.

The tune is featured on the group’s third record and major label debut, “Master Of Puppets”, which became thrash metal's first platinum album on its way to US sales of more than 6 million copies.

As part of their ongoing reissues series, Metallica released a series of remastered 30th anniversary editions of the project last fall on CD, vinyl and digital, alongside an expanded 3CD edition and a deluxe box set.

The 3-CD set includes the remastered album, a disc that is a combination of rough mixes, demos and an interview, and a disc featuring a mix of live songs that are sequenced into a typical set list from the Damage, Inc. tour.

Metallica are currently playing dates across Europe in support of their tenth album, “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.”

The set debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 to deliver the band their sixth US chart-topper.
