Metallica perform 1988 classic One in Chile

Metallica are sharing pro-shot video of a performance of their 1988 classic, “One”, from an April 27 concert at Club Hípico in Santiago, Chile.

The third single from “…And Justice For All” has the historical significance of being the band’s first track to chart on the US Billboard Hot 100 – where it peaked at No. 35 – as well as being the first music video issued by the group.

While Metallica’s fourth studio album lost out on their first Grammy nomination in 1989 to Jethro Tull in the inaugural Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance Vocal Or Instrumental award, the “One” video increased the group’s profile with the music industry and the mainstream audience and the song was honored as the renamed category’s Best Metal Performance winner a year later.

“…And Justice For All” reached US platinum status by the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA) for sales of a million copies within its first month, and went on to be certified for US sales of 8 million copies.

Metallica are set to wrap up a South American tour with a series of four concerts in Brazil over the course of the next week, including stops in Porto Alegre, Curitiba, Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte.
