Metallica stream 1991 concert from Black Album tour

Metallica are streaming video of a complete concert from their 1991 tour in support of their self-titled record in the latest installment of their weekly series “Metallica Mondays.”

“Check out tonight’s #MetallicaMondays to see an old-school show, filmed with house cameras with audio pulled straight from the soundboard,” says the band. “Get ready for a raw, grainy set from the beginning of the never-ending Black Album tour.”

The November 1 date at the L.C. Walker Arena in Muskegon, MI came early in the first North American leg of the trek, which saw Metallica perform 224 dates over a 17-month period while their fifth studio album delivered their commercial breakthrough.

Launched with the lead single, “Enter Sandman”, the “Metallica” album topped the charts in several countries on its way to worldwide sales of more than 31 million copies.

“While we’re all doing our part and staying home, we find ourselves missing live music, so how about we dive back into a few of our favorite shows at a socially responsible distance?”, says Metallica. “Not to sound too cheesy, but now more than ever, we’re in this together, and staying connected is how we’ll get through it. With that in mind, we’re bringing a series of Live Metallica shows right to your couch!”

The group launched the series with a 2019 show at the iconic Slane Castle in Meath, Ireland, and have shared footage of a 2017 Paris concert, a 2009 event in Copenhagen, a 2017 performance in their hometown of San Francisco, and a 2015 concert in Munich, Germany.
