Metallica preview Black Album reissue with 1991 performance of Sad But True

Metallica are previewing their forthcoming expanded Black Album reissue with streaming video of a 1991 performance of “Sad But True.”

Following a pair of rare club shows in California, Metallica were recorded at Gentofte Stadion in Copenhagen, Denmark on August 10, 1991, during what the band refers to as “the first ‘proper’ gig of The Black Album tour”, which also doubled as the start of the Monsters Of Rock Tour across Europe alongside AC/DC, Motley Crue, Pantera, Queensryche and The Black Crowes.

The video is featured on the “Live at Gentofte Stadion” DVD included in the Remastered Deluxe Box Set of "The Black Album", which will be released on September 10.

Metallica will reissue The Black Album with a newly-remastered version available in multiple configurations including 180 gram Double Vinyl LP, Standard CD and 3 CD Expanded Edition, digital, and Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set (containing the album remastered on 180G 2LP, a picture disc, three live LPs, 14 CDs (containing rough mixes, demos, interviews, live shows), 6 DVDs (containing outtakes, behind the scenes, official videos, live shows), a 120-page hardcover book, four tour laminates, three lithos, three guitar picks, a Metallica lanyard, a folder with lyric sheets, and a download card).

The same day, a companion package entitled “The Metallica Blacklist” will be released; it features interpretations of songs from The Black Album from more than 50 artists spanning a vast range of genres, generations, cultures, continents and more.
