Metallica perform 1999 rarity in Buenos Aires

Metallica are sharing pro-shot video of a rare performance of their 1999 track, “No Leaf Clover”, from an April 30 concert at Campo Argentino de Polo in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The tune – which first surfaced as one of two new songs featured on the band’s “S&M” live release, which captured Metallica in concert with The San Francisco Symphony conducted by Michael Kamen – was also featured during an April 27 concert in Santiago, Chile, which was the opening night of the group’s current South American tour.

The rarely-performed “No Leaf Clover” has occasionally returned to the group’s setlist since 2018 after a seven-year absence from the live lineup.

Major League Baseball’s San Francisco Giants will host the 8th annual Metallica Night AT &T Park on May 24.

"It's a tradition that we've missed the last two seasons,” says Metallica, “so we're really excited for the return of Metallica Night at Oracle Park with our hometown baseball team, the San Francisco Giants. This year marks the eighth time we'll take the field for the National Anthem, first pitch, and a few other pre-game shenanigans, and it all takes place on Tuesday, May 24th against the New York Mets.

“We look forward to seeing you at the yard for another exciting season of Giants baseball!"

Following the baseball event, Metallica will appear later this month at two US events – Bottlerock in Napa Valley, CA and Boston Calling – before heading to Europe in June to play the summer festival circuit.
