As Metallica get ready to perform at BottleRock and Boston Calling this weekend, they're also celebrating the release of another two live videos from their recent run of South American concerts.

The first comes courtesy of the live rarity "Dirty Window," performed in São Paulo, Brazil, on May 10, 2022. Of course, this track comes straight from the infamous St. Anger, and even before the band tore into the song, James Hetfield tried to gauge the audience's appreciation for the record. Check it out below.

That was only the 33rd time Metallica have ever played "Dirty Window" for a live audience. The last time was during their 40th anniversary celebrations in San Francisco, and before that, they hadn't played it since 2011.

For the second live video, we travel to Belo Horizonte, Brazil, for the epic performance of the Ride the Lightning rager, "Fight Fire With Fire," on May 12 at Estádio do Mineirão. Though performed a few hundred more times than "Dirty Window," considering this song was released in 1984, it's considered a live rarity, too; the Belo Horizonte performance was the 339th time Metallica pulled it out onstage.
