13. Master Of Puppets
14. Fade To Black

A select group of fans were brought on stage during METALLICA’s performance to add to the ambiance. Video footage of several songs from the show filmed from the fans’ point on view on stage can be seen below.
METALLICA currently has seven dates on its calendar between now and mid-September, including two shows in Quebec City, Canada and an appearance at the Rock In Rio festival.
The band has reportedly been working on its tenth studio album, which will follow up 2008’s “Death Magnetic”.
METALLICA has made available for purchase a limited-edition box set containing 50 CDs that chronicle the band’s tours of Australia and New Zealand in 2010 and 2013. The set features recordings of 62 different METALLICA originals and covers from 25 different shows, each on two discs, and retails for a hefty $395.
Despite insisting that work has been proceeding on a new CD, METALLICA has spent a lot of time outside the studio in the last year, with activities that included a string of European all-request shows last summer, a week-long residency on “The Late Show With Craig Ferguson”, and a Rock In Rio USA stint.
METALLICA has not revealed when it plans to begin recording or tentatively release the new album.
