watch Metallica’s 1983 Metro Chicago show in full
Metallica have been releasing a live concert video from their archives every Monday during quarantine for Metallica Mondays, and though most of them have come from more recent years, they did recently unveil one from 1991 and today (5/18) they're diving back even further. At 8 PM ET, they'll release a video of their August 12, 1983 set at Chicago's Metro, which was right after their now-classic debut Kill 'Em All came out. Parts of this recording were included on the Cliff 'Em All DVD and the whole show was previously released with the 2016 deluxe edition of Kill 'Em All, but this will be the first time you can stream it online, free of charge. (Though Metallica are taking donations to help with COVID-19 relief.)
Tune in below at 8 PM to watch.
UPDATE: Video out now, watch below.
In case you haven't already been listening, Metallica are also playing a different concert recording every day through May 30 on SiriusXM's Mandatory Metallica channel, and as mentioned, you can stream SiriusXM for free for the month of May.
In addition to all the archival content, Metallica recently released a quarantine performance video with a new version of "Blackened," and that version is now on streaming services.
PS: Metallica vinyl and merch, Kill 'Em All included, is available in our shop.
While you wait for the full stream, you can watch official video of "Whiplash" from the Metro show:
