As uDiscover Music previously reported, Metallica’s weekly streaming series ‘Metallica Mondays’ continued this week with the band’s full 18 June 2019 concert at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England. The show was played in the pouring rain, as the band and fans braved the weather for 18 songs, including five from ‘The Black Album’ and four from their latest LP, Hardwired … To Self-Destruct.
