‘The Ultimate Metallica Show’ Recap: An Hour of Old-School Live Tracks
In celebration of Metallica's latest concert announcement that will be focused on their music from the early-'80s, I decided to dedicate the first hour of the latest edition of The Ultimate Metallica Show to nothing but old-school live tracks. We covered a lot of ground in that hour, as you can see in the recap below, including dipping into Metallica's massive 1991 performance at the Tushino Airfield in Moscow for the Monsters of Rock festival.
While we were going old-school, we also had to raise up our horns in honor of the Major Rager himself, Mr. Cliff Burton. Sept. 27 marked the anniversary of his death, so I made sure to include a live bass solo from a show in 1986 as well as his two studio solos, "(Anesthesia) - Pulling Teeth" and "Orion."
If you missed any part of the show, as always, I have you covered.
