March 24, 2020. Rockers Metallica are going to be streaming a different concert of theirs every Monday for the foreseeable future in response to the Corona virus outbreak.
The band stated on social media: “While we’re all doing our part and staying home, we find ourselves missing live music, so how about we dive back into a few of our favorite shows at a socially responsible distance? Not to sound too cheesy, but now more than ever, we’re in this together, and staying connected is how we’ll get through it. With that in mind, we’re bringing a series of Live METALLICA shows right to your couch!”
“Starting at 8 PM EDT tonight, we’ll be debuting our brand new concert series, #MetallicaMondays, where we’ll stream the complete video of a live show for you on our YouTube channel and on Facebook every week.” You can watch the initial streaming concert – “Live at Slane Castle – June 8, 2019” here.
“Slane is just the beginning… tune in weekly for #MetallicaMondays to get a taste of live METALLICA. We know… it’s not quite the same as the real deal, and trust us, we wish we could be out there with you again!
They also announced that their live concerts in South America with Greta Van Fleet opening, originally scheduled for spring will be rescheduled for the fall. Be sure and check back here for the rescheduled dates.
Guitarist Kirk Hammett recently competed in a “Wah-Off” with guitarist/actor David Hanbury disguised as his alter-ego; “Mrs. Smith”.
