Metallica Bring the Heat With Live Performance of ‘Battery’ in Brazil
Another day, another live video from Mighty Metallica's recent run of South American shows.
Metallica have shared a new video from their recent performance in Curitiba and this time it's the pummeling Master of Puppets album opener, "Battery." This latest video was captured at Estádio Couto Pereira in Curitiba, Brazil, on May 7, 2022, the same show as the previously-released live videos for "Whiskey in the Jar" and "Sad But True."
Check out the performance of "Battery"—full of plenty of fire—below.
Watch Metallica Perform "Battery" in Curitiba
Following their May 7 gig in Curitiba, Metallica performed at Estádio do Morumbi in São Paulo and then Estádio do Mineirão in Belo Horizonte, wrapping up their shows in Brazil. During the Belo Horizonte concert, James Hetfield shared some of his recent struggles onstage, which prompted an impromptu—and absolutely beautiful—group hug with his bandmates.
Metallica's next show is stateside in the Napa Valley. They are headlining the first night of the BottleRock festival on Friday, May 27. BottleRock is a three-day fest celebrating music, food, wine and beer and features a diverse lineup including P!nk, Twenty One Pilots, Luke Combs, The Black Crowes, Pitbull and friends of 'Tallica, Greta Van Fleet. If you're feeling antsy, general admission tickets are still available for Friday; you can grab details for BottleRock here.
Metallica won't be spending the whole weekend on the West Coast, though. After their show at BottleRock, they are sprinting across the country to close out another three-day festival, Boston Calling at the Harvard Athletic Complex on Sunday, May 29. Single-day wristbands for Boston Calling can be purchased here.
