Metallica, Nugs team for rare archival shows

Ten vault concerts are available for streaming

Metallica has teamed with for the release of 10 archival concerts from their 1991-1993 world tour in support of The Black Album. Presented as part of The Metallica Black Box, fans can watch Wherever We May Roam and Nowhere Else to Roam performances that were unearthed from the Metallica Vault last year.

These concerts aren’t like the professional productions you see today. These original recordings are a true snapshot of the time, including video from Betacam tapes with the occasional camera dropout and raw soundboard audio. All content has been digitally transferred, and audio has been mastered by Reuben Cohen at Lurssen Mastering, but the standard definition charm remains.

The free premieres run Sundays and Mondays at 8 pm ET through February 6th, exclusively to subscribers. The shows will then be available in the subscription’s extensive SVOD collection on-demand, anytime.

Shows from Ohio, Los Angeles, Pasadena, Washington DC, Austria, Germany, Israel, Canada, Brazil and Indonesia are featured in the series.

Metallica and Nugs are also giving away an autographed print and deluxe box set. One lucky fan will win the Grand Prize of a limited edition framed and autographed print from 1991, featuring the signatures of James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Jason Newsted! One Runner Up will win a limited edition Metallica (The Black Album) Remastered, Deluxe Box Set.

Metallica celebrated the era in September 2021 with a 30th anniversary edition of its 1991 groundbreaking self-titled album, widely known as The Black Album. The 14 CD/6 DVD set contains a remastered edition of the original 12 track album on 180-gram double LP and CD, “Sad But True” picture disc, three live LPs and more.
