Watch Metallica perform Atlas, Rise! in Hong Kong


Metallica have released a video showing them perform Atlas, Rise!.

The song originally featured on their long-awaited 10th studio album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, which launched in 2016.

The live video was filmed at the AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong in January this year – part of the band’s tour of the Far East. It also marked the first time Metallica have played a show in the territory.

The band said: “We told you how excited we are to hit the ground running in 2017 with tour dates in Asia and we’re back today with a Metallica first – a show in Hong Kong.

“Thirty-five years and still beyond psyched to go to new frontiers, so this promises to be a very special night as we hit the stage at the AsiaWorld-Expo.”

Metallica unveiled Atlas, Rise! last Halloween – and made spooky Hardwired masks available prior to its release, which gave fans the chance to listen to the track before it officially launched.

Metallica are currently gearing up for a run of South American dates. They’ll then head out on the road across North America from May.
