Metallica Monday 8/19/20

This week, Metallica‘s ongoing vintage video series, dubbed “Metallica Mondays,” featured the band’s set from their September 14, 2011 show at New York’s Yankee Stadium. The show was the last of the “Big Four” events featuring Metallica, MegadethSlayer, and Anthrax.

Blabbermouth reported during the concert’s encores, “Overkill” featured a full stage including Kerry King, Dave Lombardo, Gary HoltDavid EllefsonChris Broderick, Shawn Drover, Scott Ian, Rob Caggiano, Frank BelloCharlie Benante, and Joey Belladonna.

The relationship between Metallica and the band’s original guitarist, Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, has often been portrayed as a testy one, although Lars Ulrich told us that all the reports of animosity have been overblown: [“I mean, so much has been made of these relationships, and certainly speaking for myself, Dave and I have two separate relationships — one that exists between Dave and I, and one that exists in the press and with everybody else. And I always know that, y’know, my and Dave’s private relationship is always fine, and it’s always one that’s rooted in love and respect.”] SOUNDCUE (:22 OC: . . . love and respect)
