Stream Metallica’s Final Shows From European Tour + Watch ‘Sad But True’ in Bilbao
Metallica's summer tour in Europe is officially over, but fans can re-live the excitement of every performance thanks to the band's amazing archive.
All 11 European shows are now available to stream and download, including their final three concerts in Bilbao and Madrid, Spain, and Lisbon, Portugal. You can grab these shows and many, many more at LiveMetallica.com and nugs.net.
In addition to the full performances getting added to the LiveMetallica archive, Metallica continue to release professionally-shot live videos from the concerts.
So far they've unveiled videos from Copenhagen, Landgraaf, Florence, Prague, Hockenheim, Clisson and Werchter, and now they've released their first video from Spain: "Sad But True" live at Bilbao Bizkaia Rock Day in Bilbao. Check it out in the player below.
Watch Metallica Perform "Sad But True" Live in Bilbao
This marked only the second time that Metallica have performed in Bilbao in their entire career. In addition to the thrashers, the Bilbao Bizkaia Rock Day festival featured artists like Weezer, The Hellacopters, Nothing But Thieves and The Regrettes.
Metallica's Bilbao setlist looked pretty similar to their other European dates. Most noticeably different, though, was the fact that they dropped "Damage, Inc." as the encore opener for the live rarity, "Metal Militia."
"Sad But True" is a mainstay in Metallica's live set. They first debuted it onstage at the Phoenix Theatre in Petaluma, Calif., on Aug. 1, 1991, and have since performed it more than 1,360 times. It was released as an official single from the "Black Album" on Feb. 8, 1993, and was backed with Metallica's studio cover of Anti-Nowhere League's "So What."
Metallica have three tour dates left in 2022: Chicago, Buffalo and Pittsburgh. You can find their tour schedule here.
