Metallica Offer Official Video Footage, Concert Downloads From Los Angeles + Oakland Shows
Metallica's touring is done for 2016, but they're finishing out the year by providing some great memories for fans. The group recently played club shows at Los Angeles' Fonda Theatre and Oakland's Fox Theatre and they've now provided official video footage and given fans the opportunity to download both concert performances.
Metallica played Los Angeles' Fonda Theatre back on Dec. 15, mixing a blend of new tracks like "Hardwired," "Atlas, Rise!" and "Moth Into Flame" alongside such classics as "Enter Sandman," "Master of Puppets" and "Fade to Black." During their performance, they also rocked out the classic "Metal Militia," which you can see in the official video footage above. You can also check out our photos from the show here and pick up audio of the concert in full at this location.
Two days later (Dec. 17), Metallica took over Oakland's Fox Theater for a hometown gig. After opening with a cover of Budgie's "Breadfan," the band rocked out "Creeping Death" and "Blackened," both of which can be seen in the official video footage below. If you want to pick up the full concert audio from the show, you can do so here.
The band has also made some of the concert t-shirts available from their Los Angeles, Oakland and Toronto shows available via their Met Store.
Metallica may be done for 2016, but they start their 2017 touring pretty soon. Their first date comes Jan. 11 in Seoul, South Korea. See all of their upcoming dates here.
