VIDEO: Metallica perform Atlas Rise in Las Vegas

Metallica are streaming official video of a performance the “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct” track, “Atlas, Rise!”, from a November 26 concert at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV.

The second single from their tenth album topped the US Billboard Mainstream Rock chart upon its release in the fall of 2016 as the band were playing warm-up dates for the WorldWired tour in South America.

Nominated for a 2018 Grammy Award, “Atlas, Rise!” lost out to the Foo Fighters’ track “Run” in Best Rock Song category at the 60th annual event in January, while the project failed to take home the honors in the Best Rock Album field after it was presented to The War On Drugs.

The Las Vegas show marked Metallica’s return to the stage following a short break on their North American tour, as they work towards wrapping up their 2018 live schedule in Fresno, CA on December 9.

Metallica will be among the featured acts performing as part of an all-star lineup of rockers set to honor late Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell with a tribute concert event next month.

“I Am The Highway: A Tribute To Chris Cornell” will take place at The Forum in Los Angeles on Wednesday, January 16.

Hosted by ABC-TV late night host Jimmy Kimmel, the event will feature performances from the Foo Fighters, members of Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog and Audioslave, Ryan Adams and many more
