Metallica have released a pair of videos showcasing their January date in Beijing, China.

The clips show James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Robert Trujillo and Lars Ulrich on stage at Beijing’s LeSports Center on January 18 – with the first video showing Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang joining the band on stage.

He can first be seen talking through ideas with the group before the performance – with later footage showing him playing the piano during Metallica’s One.

The second clip shows the band playing classic track Creeping Death, from 1984’s Ride The Lightning album.

The band previously issued recap videos for their other Far East performances in Seoul and Shanghai. The shows were part of the band’s tour in support of 2016 album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct.

Last week, Metallica released studio footage from recording sessions for Am I Savage? from the album.

Metallica have a handful of South American dates scheduled for March. They’ll then embark on the North American leg of their WorldWired tour from May.
