Metallica stream live debut of 72 Seasons epic Inamorata

Metallica is streaming video of the live debut performance of its epic “72 Seasons” track, “Inamorata,” from a May 26 show in Munich, Germany.

The closing song from the 2023 album was delivered at the city’s Olympiastadion during the second of two shows in the city as part of the launch of the 2024 leg of the band’s ongoing M72 World Tour.

With a running time of more than 11 minutes, the song is the longest recorded original tune in Metallica’s catalogue.

"This next song, we have never, ever played live before,” James Hetfield told the crowd. “And, you know, in our band we don't recognize the word 'mistake', because there are no mistakes' there's just unique moments that happen, all right? That's what we need to tell ourselves. This one is from '72 Seasons'. It's one of my favorites, so I'm gonna like it."

Produced by Hetfield, Lars Ulrich and Greg Fidelman, the band recorded “72 Seasons” at Metallica's HQ in San Rafael, CA in 2021 and 2022.
