Metallica have once again raided the archives for the latest instalment of their Metallica Mondays series.

For the 21st episode, the band have gone back to their show at Munich's Olympiastadion on June 13, 2004 – a stop on their Madly In Anger With The World tour where they were supported by Slipknot.

Metallica have also confirmed they’ll be joining The Howard Stern Show tomorrow night (August 12) on SiriusXM and the Howard Stern website.

Metallica say: “Our great friend, and ever loyal Metallica supporter, Howard Stern, has invited us to pay a virtual visit to his show this Wednesday, August 12. 

“It’s going to be yet another first during this very unusual time as we’ll be hanging in Northern California at HQ and chatting with Howard while he’s camped out in his home studio. 

“In between the banter we’re going to fire up the amps, get behind the drums and beam a few songs live to Howard as well. Tune in for lots of conversation and some morning metal!”

Earlier this week, Metallica announced details of their first show of 2020.

The band will take part in the Encore Drive-In Nights series, playing a full set near their California HQ, with the performance screened at drive-ins and outdoor theatres across North America for one night only on August 29.

And, on August 28, Metallica will release S&M2 on 2CD, 4LP, collectible coloured vinyl, Blu-ray, a Deluxe Box set – and as a Fifth Member exclusive Super Deluxe Box, which is limited to just 500 copies.

Metallica previously released Nothing Else Matters and All Within My Hands from S&M2.
