Metallica performed their 1997 classic, “The Memory Remains”, at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland on May 9, and the band are sharing professional footage from the event.

The tune was the lead single from the group’s seventh album, “ReLoad.” The track peaked at No. 28 on the US Billboard Hot 100 while the project debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 on its way to US sales of more than 4 million copies.

The May 9 stop in Helsinki was the first of two dates in the city, as Metallica prepared to wrap up their arena tour of Europe with another show at the same venue on May 11.

The concert also featured a guest appearance by former Hanoi Rocks singer and Finnish rock legend Michael Monroe, who joined bassist Robert Trujillo and guitarist Kirk Hammett for a performance of his 1989 single, “Dead, Jail Or Rock 'N' Roll."

On May 23, Metallica – in cooperation with Feeding America – are encouraging fans at home across the United States to volunteer for a day at the community food banks the band supported during last summer's North American tour.

Each registered volunteer will receive a special All Within My Hands t-shirt commemorating Metallica's first united day of service. Please note that space is limited and fans must register; unfortunately walk-ins will not be accepted.

For those who do not live near one of the food banks listed on the site or are unavailable on this day, the band encourage visiting Feeding America to find a local food bank in their community.
