Metallica Release Santiago Concert + Share Live Video of ‘Spit Out the Bone’
On Wednesday, April 27, Metallica kicked off their South American tour with an epic stop at Club Hípico, a horse race track in Santiago, Chile—and now the show is available via LiveMetallica.com and nugs.net for fans to stream and download.
Before they even took the stage for the show, the city of Santiago knew it was going to be a loud night; fans captured footage of their soundcheck from way outside of the venue and the track is lit up and booming with Metallica's pummeling rehearsal of "One." You can see that footage here.
The night was full of hits from Metallica's 40-year career, but there were a couple of awesome surprises like playing "The Memory Remains" for the first time in Santiago since 1999 and opening the encore with "Spit Out the Bone."

In 2010, Metallica performed at Club Hípico on their World Magnetic Tour. That performance will forever be connected to a riot that took place at the race track. As SPIN reported days after the show, "Over a hundred metal-starved fans were arrested in Santiago, Chile, Tuesday night after 2,000 ticketless people attempted to crash the gates at a Metallica concert. The show was the metal gods' first in Chile in 10 years, and drew a paying crowd of 55,000."
