Metallica Play Deep Cuts As They Open Their European Tour


It looks like Metallica fans are in for a treat during the band’s new tour. The band kicked off its European spring/summer leg of its World Wired tour at the Estadio Do Restelo in Lisbon, Portugal on May 1st and the band played some seriously deep cuts and rarities.

During the band’s last run in a North America they added some new additions to the set, including four tour debuts: 1986’s “Disposable Heroes”, 1991’s “The God That Failed”, 2003’s “Frantic” and 2014’s “Lords Of Summer,” and it looks like that trend is about to carry on.

The band posted on social media after the show:  “Lisbon! Thanks for joining us in kicking off the summer stadium tour!” This was accompanied by a recap video of the gig with a soundtrack featuring an orchestral arrangement of their 1991 classic, “Nothing Else Matters.”

Joining Metallica on the opening night of the tour were Swedish rockers Ghost and Bokassa. Both bands will on the 25-date run, which wraps up in Mannheim, Germany at the end of August.
