We're about eight weeks away from the release of 72 Seasons, which means we're about 10 weeks away from Metallica taking over the world on their massive M72 tour. In anticipation of their global, two-year tour in support of their new record, I figured we should spend a bit of quality time with some killer live performances from throughout their career.

The first hour of The Ultimate Metallica Show was dedicated to exactly that as we traveled from Munich to Manchester and New York to Salt Lake City, covering more than 20 years of Metallica shows in the process.

The second hour was, well, just a lot of fun, as you'll see in the recap below. And don't forget, if you missed out on the show or want to re-live it, you can stream The Ultimate Metallica Show 24/7 right here.

So, I'm thinking about doing the whole Live Metallica thing for the first hour of every show until we get to the start of the M72 tour, just like we did this past weekend. What do you think? Let me know and if you happen to have a favorite live show you want to hear, let me know that, too. Drop me a line in the Ultimate Metallica app.
