The world’s concert stages may be silent, but the internet is abuzz with artists doing live shots from their living rooms, empty clubs and even grocery store parking lots are hosting drive-in concerts. Metallica have jumped on-board with the announcement of #MetallicaMonday.
The band announced that they will be adding a concert video of a live show once a week, until the current health crisis subsides. They started Monday night March 23rd with the debut of live footage from last year’s historic concert at Slane Castle in Ireland.
The band’s press release details the steps the band is taking to keep fans entertained as the South American leg of their tour was pushed to December. Three of their US dates were also postponed, including Epicenter in Charlotte and Sonic Temple in Columbus.
“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.
We’re kicking it off with an iconic location, so please tune in tonight to watch Metallica: Live at Slane Castle – June 8, 2019.
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!
