Metallica share rare Blitzkrieg performance

Metallica are sharing proshot video of a rare performance of their cover of the 1980 track, “Blitzkrieg”, from their November 6 tribute concert in honor of the founders of Megaforce Records, Jon and Marsha Zazula.

Originally recorded by the UK band of the same name, the recent Hollywood, FL appearance marked only the 4th time that the group has included "Blitzkrieg" in their set in the past 10 years.

The event at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino saw Metallica honor the late husband and wife duo and their record label, which released the band’s first two albums: 1983's "Kill 'Em All" and 1984's "Ride The Lightning."

Metallica will next be seen hosting the All Within My Hands Helping Hands Concert & Auction at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA on December 16.

Pick up your copies of “Kill ‘Em All” here and “Ride The Lightning” here.
