Professionally filmed video footage of METALLICA performing the song “Enter Sandman” on August 25 at Palastzelt Maimarktgelände in Mannheim, Germany can be seen below.
Earlier this month, Billboard reported that METALLICA was the highest-ranked hard rock act on the magazine’s year-end Boxscore chart, with a combined gross of $177 million from 46 reported concerts during the band’s ongoing “WorldWired” tour. The band sold 1.7 million tickets around the world during the 12-month time frame that determined the chart’s rankings.
METALLICA will headline five major North American festivals next year, all of which are produced by Danny Wimmer Presents. The events are Epicenter, Welcome To Rockville, Sonic Temple Music + Arts, Louder Than Life and Aftershock. The band will play two separate headlining sets at each stop, with a unique setlist for each performance, resulting in 10 different shows.
These shows will be METALLICA‘s only U.S. festival appearances of 2020. The quartet will play on Friday night and Sunday night at each event.
To mark the 20th anniversary of METALLICA‘s first performance with the San Francisco Symphony, which resulted in the live “S&M” album and video, the band re-teamed with the symphony in early September for two shows for the grand opening of Chase Center, the new home of the Golden State Warriors.
A film of the concerts, called “S&M²”, arrived in theaters worldwide in October.
