VIDEO: Metallica perform 1983 classic in rare Portland concert

Metallica are streaming official video of a performance the 1983 classic, “No Remorse”, from a recent and rare concert in Portland, OR.

As part of an extended WorldWired tour in support of 2016’s “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct”, the December 5 event at the city’s Moda Center marked the first Metallica show in the city in a decade.

“No Remorse” appeared on the group’s debut album, “Kill ‘Em All”, which didn’t arrive on the US Billboard 200 chart until three years later, where it peaked at No. 66 on its way to eventually selling 3 million copies Stateside.

Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation recently launched a US community college initiative that sees the band donating $1 million dollars to enhance career and technical education programs across the country.

Ten colleges from across the US will receive $100,000 each to support more than 1,000 students training to enter the workforce through programs that provide skills and services to those who are looking to enter a traditional trade or other applied learning program.

Partnering with the American Association of Community Colleges – a Washington, D.C.-based organization that represents the nation’s 1,103 community colleges – the Metallica Scholars awards were selected via a competitive application process and are designed to provide support of relevant job skill training for community college students, reinvest in communities that supported Metallica during its recent US tours, and leverage the influence of the group to elevate the importance of career and technical education.

“All of us in the band feel fortunate that music has provided us the opportunity to be successful doing something we are passionate about,” says drummer Lars Ulrich. “We want to share our success with others so that they can find a job where they can do the same.”
