Metallica Post ‘All Angle’ Footage of ‘Sad But True’ From Minneapolis Show
Not everyone was able to make it to Minneapolis for the first rock show ever held at the new US Bank Stadium on Aug. 20, but even if you were, Metallica are giving fans a look at the show you might not have even gotten if you were there. They've posted an "all angle" video of their performance of "Sad But True" from the show that includes so much more than just the stage show.
The cameras allow the viewers the chance to see some of the many fans that came to watch Metallica play, get a look at the pyro pre-show preparation, get a glimpse at the fan meet-and-greet and watch the expressions of fans in the upper reaches of the U.S. Bank Arena as the film crew gets their stories and presents them with passes to move closer to the stage.
As for the performance, you get high quality video of the band onstage delivering the heaviness of the song while audience members show their enthusiasm for the track. And be sure to stay tuned for the fireworks going off at the end.
During the show, you see James Hetfield giving a shout out to support acts Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat and dedicating "Sad But True" to them, while being overwhelmed by the support as the band finished out the track. Watch it all play out in the video above.
