On Friday night, May 26, this year's Boston Calling festival kicked off. In celebration of that and the general start of festival season, we decided to dedicate the first hour of The Ultimate Metallica Show this past weekend to Metallica's epic headlining performance from the 2022 edition of Boston Calling.

In the second hour, we covered plenty of other ground, including spinning Metallica's take on Iron Maiden's "Remember Tomorrow" and Motorhead's always-amazing take on "Whiplash."

If you missed the show, you can stream it 24/7 right here and check out the full playlist below.

11 Amazing Metallica Concert Posters From 2022

Even before Metallica announced plans for their 12th studio album, 72 Seasons, 2022 was shaping up to be one of the most memorable years in the band's career.

They put together a massive run of shows across South America, pulled out some live rarities in Europe and tore through the states with big appearances in cities like Chicago and Boston. Most notably, they created an unforgettable live experience for fans with an old-school show in honor of Jonny and Marsha Zazula, Metallica's first-ever managers and co-founders of Megaforce Records. And they will close out the year with an acoustic performance at The Helping Hands Concert in support of Metallica's All Within My Hands Foundation.

As Metallica have done for decades, each live experience in '22 wasn't just about the music, but also about the unforgettable show posters tied to each concert. While we prepare ourselves for Metallica's huge M72 tour in 2023 and 2024, let's take a moment to look back at some of our favorite Metallica concert posters from 2022.
