As part of this year’s Bridge School Benefit Concert, Metallica took the stage for a rare acoustic set. Fans were treated to a number of surprises, including the first live performance of “Hero of the Day” in 17 years in addition to covers of The Clash’s “Clampdown” and Buffalo Springfield’s “Mr. Soul”, the latter of which saw them share the stage with Neil Young.
