VIDEO: Metallica perform Master Of Puppets classic in Madrid

Metallica are streaming official video of a performance their 1986 "Master Of Puppets" classic, “Disposable Heroes”, from a May 3 concert at Valdebebas in Madrid, Spain.

The song’s appearance marked the first time in nearly nine years that it was performed in the Spanish capital and followed its WorldWired tour debut in Lisbon, Portugal two nights earlier during the opening night of the group’s 2019 summer series of shows in Europe.

The group’s major label debut, “Master Of Puppets” became thrash metal's first platinum album on its way to US sales of more than 6 million copies.

On the road in support of the band’s tenth studio record, 2016’s “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct”, Metallica’s 25-date spring/summer concert series will wrap up in Mannheim, Germany in late August.

Metallica recently revealed details for their All Within My Hands Foundation’s second annual Day Of Service.

“Last year over 1,000 of you participated in our first Day of Service by volunteering at your local food banks,” explains the group. “Thanks to all of you, hundreds of thousands of pounds of food was packed and distributed to those in need . . . way to make a difference in your communities!

“We’re thrilled to be back with the details of our second annual Day of Service on Wednesday, May 22nd as we once again invite Metallica fans across the U.S. to join us in volunteering for a day with our friends at the community food banks we supported during our recent North American tours.”
