Metallica‘s “Metallica Mondays” concert series continues, and this week, the biggest heavy-metal band in the world threw back to 2013. The series — which has been a great way to pass two-and-a-half hours or so while stuck at home during the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting shutdown of the live music circuit — has seen the group digging up standout footage of shows from across their career and broadcasting it online. Yesterday (June 15th), James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo revisited their 18-song set from March 1st, 2013 at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia. The concert footage features the metal icons tearing through a finely curated array of classic cuts and more modern offerings. Watch the full performance and check out the setlist below.

Last night’s broadcast marked the 12th entry in the “Metallica Mondays” series. The previous 11 offerings include sets at Slane Castle in Ireland in 2019; Paris’ AccorHotels Arena in 2017; Forum København in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2009; San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival in the summer of 2017; Munich, Germany, in 2015;  L.C. Walker Arena in Muskegon, Michigan, in 1991; House of Vans in London, in 2016; Pannonia Fields II in Nickelsdorf, Austria, in 1991; The Metro in Chicago, Illinois, in 1983; Estadio Nacional in Lima, Peru, in 2014; and Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England, in 2019.

In addition to the concert series, Metallica have also responded to the coronavirus crisis via All Within My Hands, their nonprofit organization. The band donated “four grants totaling $350,000 to organizations dedicated to assisting those hit hard by the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.”
