Metallica share debut Texas performance of 1986 instrumental Orion

Metallica is sharing video of the debut Texas performance of its 1986 instrumental, “Orion.”

The August 18 event at Arlington’s AT&T Stadium marked the first time the “Master Of Puppets” track was ever performed in the state of Texas.

Featuring opening sets by Pantera and Mammoth WVH, the first of two shows in the city opened the eighth weekend of Metallica’s M72 World Tour in support of its latest album, “72 Seasons.”

Recorded at the group’s HQ in San Rafael, CA in 2021 and 2022, and produced by Greg Fidelman alongside band members James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, the project debuted at No. 1 on the US Album Sales chart upon its release in April.
