#MetallicaMondays: Metallica Take a Trip Back to 1991 With Black Album Concert

on April 27, 2020, 4:34pm

The weekly #MetallicaMondays series, in which Metallica stream full concerts online, continues with the band’s 1991 performance from Muskegon, Michigan.

The November 1st, 1991, concert saw Metallica at the start of their massive “Wherever We May Roam Tour” in support of “The Black Album”, which went on to become a multiplatinum smash. The setlist featured 21 songs, including four from “The Black Album”.

As Metallica mention in promoting the show, the quality is not exactly hi-def: “Get ready for a raw, grainy set from the beginning of the never ending Black Album tour!” Still, it captures the band during its rise from metal favorites to worldwide rock superstars.

Metallica announced the free streaming series after postponing or canceling all spring shows due to the coronavirus pandemic. Their South American leg with Greta Van Fleet was rescheduled to December, and headlining festival slots at Epicenter and Welcome to Rockville were canceled.

Up until last week, Metallica were slated to headline the Louder Than Life Festival in Louisville, Kentucky, on September 17th, but that festival has since been canceled, as well. As of now, the only U.S. gig still scheduled is a headlining performance at the Aftershock Festival, taking place October 9th-11th in Sacramento, California.

In addition to providing fans with free concert streams, Metallica recently announced that they have pledged $350,000 to COVID-19 relief through their All Within My Hands Foundation.
