Metallica just starts to stream live concerts at 8 PM ET every Monday nights (starting tonight) on YouTube and Facebook. They also launch this with the “#MetallicaMondays” tag.
Thrash metal legends just announced the new concert series in their social media accounts. Because of coronavirus shutdowns. Also, they share this statement: “While we’re all doing our part and staying home, we find ourselves missing live music, so how about we dive back into a few of our favorite shows at a socially responsible distance? Not to sound too cheesy, but now more than ever, we’re in this together, and staying connected is how we’ll get through it. With that in mind, we’re bringing a series of Live METALLICA shows right to your couch!”
They have canceled an Australian and US tour. However, the band announced that frontman James Hetfield returns his rehab.
