VIDEO: Metallica perform 1983 classics on fall US tour

Metallica are streaming official live videos of a series of fall 2018 US performances of tracks from their 1983 debut album, “Kill ‘Em All.”

In September, the band rocked “The Four Horsemen” in Winnipeg, MB and “Seek & Destroy” in San Francisco, CA; “Motorbreath” in Milwaukee, WI in mid-October; and “Whiplash” in Pittsburgh, PA and Sacramento, CA before wrapping up their live schedule for the year in early December.

“Kill ‘Em All” didn’t arrive on the US Billboard 200 chart until three years after its release, where it peaked at No. 66 on its way to eventually selling 3 million copies Stateside.

Metallica are sharing the newly-released clips as they enjoy a month-long break from the trek in support of 2016’s “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.”

The group 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.

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

The band will resume the WorldWired tour in Tulsa, OK on January 18.

Metallica recently delivered the No. 5 Rock News Story Of The Year as part of the 2018 hennemusic Rock News Awards.
