Watch Metallica’s headline set from Austin City Limits in full

Metallica headlined the Austin City Limits festival on Saturday night.

The whole show was live-streamed, but for those who missed it – or want to watch it again – you’re in luck, as the band have uploaded the entire set online and you can watch the full two-hour set below.

The performance included classic tracks from throughout Metallica’s career, including Seek & Destroy, Welcome Home (Sanitarium), For Whom The Bell Tolls, One, Master Of Puppets, Enter Sandman and more.

Thanking the fans at the end of the show, drummer Lars Ulrich said: “Thirty five years ago, Metallica rolled into Austin in the summer of 1983 and played a club called The Nightlife. 

“I don’t know if anybody was there. Most of you guys weren’t probably born in 1983, but since then, Metallica has been back to Austin and played a bunch of times and I just want to tell you something: Metallica's just getting started, so thank you for the 35 years of love.”

Metallica will resume their WorldWired tour dates later this month across the US and will return to the UK and Europe for further show in 2019.

They’ll also play a rare acoustic show in San Francisco on November 3 to raise money for their All Within My Hands Foundation.

They'll reissue their classic 1988 album …And Justice For All (opens in new tab) on November 2 via Blackened Recordings.
