Metallica performed the Killing Joke classic, “The Wait”, at Olympiahalle in Munich, Germany on April 26, and the band are streaming professional footage from the show.

Metallica covered the tune from the UK band’s 1980 self-titled debut on their 1987 collection, "The $5.98 EP – Garage Days Re-Revisited", which has recently been reissued after being out-of-print for decades.

The 5-track set sees Metallica deliver covers of some of their primary influences, including Diamond Head, Misfits and Budgie.

Upon its original release, the EP peaked at No. 28 on the US Billboard 200 on its way to sales of more than a million copies in the country.

The Munich stop is part of Metallica’s current arena tour of Europe in support of their tenth album, “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.”

The 2016 record debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 to deliver the group their sixth US chart-topper.
