Metallica 8/5/20

Metallica‘s ongoing vintage video series, dubbed “Metallica Mondays,” rewound the clock a full 20 years to spotlight the band’s August 3rd, 2000 at Dallas, Texas’ Starplex Amphitheater, which fell on James Hetfield‘s 37th birthday. Blabbermouth posted that in addition to a heavy dose of Metallica standards, the pro-shot concert includes covers of Bob Seger‘s “Turn The Page,” the Misfits‘ “Last Caress,” and Anti-Nowhere League‘s “So What.”

The modern era of Metallica has marked a far happier time for its bandmembers both on and off the stage. Lars Ulrich recently told us that the group tries to have a good time these days whether its recording or touring: [“It’s just about, like, having fun and wanting to do it, and as long as everybody gets along, and as long as we come up with s*** that keeps challenging ourselves and is fun to play and it’s, like, a good vibe, y’know. . . and then going out and playing, like, 15 nutty shows in Europe in front of, like, a gazillion people, and playing, like, y’know, ‘Orion’ in its entirety or, you know, ‘Disposable Heroes,’ it’s all fun.”] SOUNDCUE (:20 OC: . . . it’s all fun)
