Metallica: Watch footage from their Danish shows


Metallica have released a pair of videos showcasing their February concerts in Denmark.

They played two sets at Copenhagen’s Royal Arena last month – although they were forced to postpone one of the shows because of throat problems affecting guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield.

And in two new videos, Metallica’s performances of The Call Of Ktulu and Welcome Home (Sanitarium) can now be viewed. Watch both videos below.

The postponed set will now take place on September 2 following the North American leg of the band’s WorldWired tour.

The band said at the time: “We know that many of you made travel plans to spend the weekend with us and we are very sorry for any inconvenience this will cause.

“We hope that you will be able to come back to Copenhagen in September and we’ll do our best to make it up to everyone with something unique for you at the make-up gig, along with a kick ass show of course!”

Meanwhile, Metallica have announced that they are teaming up with DJ and producer Mix Master Mike for the North American shows.

The band say in a statement: “The party will roll all night long during the North American WorldWired tour as we’re psyched to announce that award-winning DJ and producer Mix Master Mike will be spinning some of your favourite – and ours – hard rock and metal tracks throughout the evening at all of the stadium dates this summer.

“A pioneer in the hip-hop and DJ communities, you’ll be able to catch his skilful, hard-hitting scratch work once the doors open each night and between acts before we hit the stage.”

They add: “We are so honoured and feel extremely lucky that Mix Master Mike has signed on for this adventure. See you in May!”

Metallica’s next leg of their WorldWired tour dates get underway at Lollapalooza Brazil on March 25.
