METALLICA honored Elton John and his songwriting partner Bernie Taupin by performing at a tribute concert at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. on March 20. A full video of the performance has now been posted on METALLICA‘s YouTube channel and can be seen below.

Elton and Bernie collected the Library Of Congress Gershwin Prize for their contribution to music at the invitation-only event, which included appearances by John and Taupin, was hosted by Billy Porter.

METALLICA opened the show with a rendition of “Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding” from John‘s 1973 double album “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”.

A month ago, METALLICA shared only a snippet of the performance on social media, writing in an accompanying message: “Sir Elton John helped cover ‘Nothing Else Matters’ on ‘The Metallica Blacklist’ in 2021, and tonight, you can see us return the favour! Tune in to PBS to catch our rendition of ‘Funeral For A Friend’ / ‘Love Lies Bleeding’ at this year’s Gershwin Prize for Popular Music, celebrating the achievements of Elton John and his writing partner, Bernie Taupin.”
