VIDEO: Metallica perform 1984 classic in Salt Lake City

Metallica are streaming official video of a performance the 1984 classic, “Fight Fire With Fire”, from a November 30 show at the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, UT.

The tune was the opening track from the band’s second album, “Ride The Lightning”, which peaked at No. 48 on the Billboard 200 on its way to US sales of more than 6 million copies.

The Salt Lake City stop marked Metallica’s first show in the Utah capital in a decade, and the song’s first appearance in concert there in 20 years.

The event was also one of the final 2018 live dates by Metallica as they continue to tour in support of 2016’s “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.”

The band will next be seen performing at the “I Am The Highway: A Tribute To Chris Cornell” show at The Forum in Los Angeles on Wednesday, January 16.

Metallica will then resume a North American trek in Tulsa, OK on January 18, with shows on the continent scheduled into mid-March.
