“In honor of Month of Giving, we are bringing #MetallicaMondays concert video series back for a special one-off event benefiting the All Within My Hands foundation’s annual Month of Giving,” the group say on YouTube, as the introduction to a show filmed at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska on September 6, 2018.
You can see a giglist from the show and live photos at the band’s official website.
The band’s statement also reads: “All funds raised during the Month of Giving will be split between two of AWMH’s partners: Feeding America and Direct Relief. That means that your generosity will help combat food insecurity on a national level in the US, as well as improve quality of life for people confronting enormous hardship while recovering from disasters worldwide.”
Elsewhere in Metallica news, it seems likely the band will be reissuing the ‘Black Album’ later this year for its 30th anniversary. Last Friday, they posted a clip of a 1992 live performance of “Wherever I May Roam” from San Diego on Instagram, tagging the post with the hashtag ‘BlackAlbum2021?’
Given that the quartet have already released deluxe reissues of Kill ‘Em All, Ride The Lightning, Master Of Puppets and …And Justice For All in recent years, an expanded reissue of Metallica, which will celebrate its 30th birthday on August 12, 2021, would make perfect sense, though as yet nothing has been confirmed.
Know the world over as the ‘Black Album’, Metallica has sold over 30 million copies worldwide, and spent a remarkable 580 (non-consecutive) weeks on the Billboard 200 chart in America, an achievement bettered only by one other studio album in history, Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon.
