As widely reported, especially in Europe, some people weren't happy that Metallica were invited to perform at this Glastonbury Fest in the U.K. The Criticism included witty statements like: "Metallica aren't in the spirit of peace-loving Glastonbury" and "[Metallica can be] a bit abrasive."
We don't know why this pro-shot video of Metallica's complete Glastonbury set is already online — but we're not complaining! Below, you can watch every moment of the legendary band's Saturday-night set at Glastonbury.
Of course, Metallica performed at Glastonbury in the U.K. this past Saturday. However, Jack White gave the crowd an extra shot of Metallica by covering “Enter Sandman” during his own set earlier in the day. White actually meshed bits of “Enter Sandman” with his own song, “Cannon.”
Tucked in a nondescript industrial tract north of San Francisco near San Pablo Bay, Metallica’s headquarters is an oasis for both thrash fanatics and gear heads of every stripe. The massive studio—dubbed HQ by the band—has been Metallica’s base of operations for writing, rehearsals, demoing and all-purpose hanging since late 2001. In a rare case of reality trumping fantasy, it is a place that exceeds expectations.
We already posted a fan-shot video of Metallica's first-ever performance of deep album cut "The Frayed Ends of Sanity," but now Metallica have released their own, professionally shot, clip of the performance.
