Metallica Post Footage + Audio From Russian Concert, Offer ‘Ktulu’ Illustrations
Metallica recently played a pair of shows in Russia, and have now posted "Fly on the Wall" footage of their St. Petersburg performance on Aug. 25. The 18-minute clip begins with a birthday "pie-ing" followed by the band rehearsing in the tuning room. Their performance of the song "One" from the show wraps things up.
Audio of the show is also available for purchase at this location. The show was bookended with "Fuel" and "Enter Sandman," with such favorites as "For Whom the Bell Tolls," "Sad But True," "Nothing Else Matters" and their covers of "Turn the Page" and "Whiskey in the Jar" sandwiched in between. Many formats are available including MP3, FLAC and CD. You can also buy the Aug. 27 Moscow concert audio here.
