METALLICA performed its new song “Hardwired” live for the first time Saturday night (August 20) during the band’s headlining concert at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Video and audio footage of the performance is available below.
“The song ‘Hardwired’, the first time we played that all in the same room was this Monday, so this is as fresh off the assembly line as rock and roll gets,” METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich told Fox 9. “So, it’s been an intense week and we’re excited about launching the next chapter of METALLICA‘s career here in Minneapolis.”
METALLICA became the second ever band to rock U.S. Bank Stadium, which sold out in less than ten minutes after tickets went on sale this past March.
“It never gets old,” Ulrich said. “If it ever gets old, punch me. Slap me around do something. Now there are 55,000 people out there. It’s pretty crazy. It does not get old. It gets cooler and cooler actually as we go along.”
