Metallica stream bootleg from 1989 Damaged Justice tour

Metallica are streaming video of their own bootleg footage of a full 1989 concert from Irvine, CA in the latest installment of their weekly streaming series.

“Metallica Mondays gets busted by security!,” says the band. “Check out the bootleg camcorder footage (with soundboard audio) from the final gig of the North American leg of the Damaged Justice tour … filmed on Lars’ personal camcorder at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA on September 23, 1989.

"Don't expect some fancy pro-shot video this time around!”

The trek in support of their fourth album, “...And Justice for All”, saw Metallica perform 219 shows before the year-long series arrived in Irvine for a three-night stand, which went on to wrap up with three dates in Brazil the following month.

“...And Justice for All” was a Top 10 record in several countries, including the US, where it reached No. 6 on the Billboard 200 on its way to sales of eight million copies in the region.
