December 19th saw the second of Metallica‘s pair of 40th anniversary shows, at the Chase Center (in San Francisco, California). The first show of the two took place this past Friday, December 17th and went down in history as they debuted “Fixxxer” from their 1997 multi-platinum album “Reload”, for the first time ever.
That night’s, which was livestreamed for free (like the first show), saw the band break new boundaries on stage, performing live for the first time their tracks “The End Of The Line“, “Dirty Window“, “Bleeding Me” and “Wasting My Hate” since 2010-2011, a decade ago. “I Disappear” also got its first stage time since 2013.
The band also had a special voice over guest to bring forth the opening of their set, knighting Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello worthy of such a position. Pro-shot footage of both of these shows will be made available in the near future on Amazon Prime‘s The Coda Collection channel, but for now you can check these videos out on YouTube below:
