First up is a Slane Castle gig from 2019.

Metallica may be staying home due to the coronavirus, but that doesn't mean they aren't here to rock your face off. The band, who announced on Monday (March 23) that they have been forced to postpone a scheduled South American spring tour with Greta Van Fleet, as well as headlining slots at the now cancelled Sonic Temple, Epicenter and Welcome to Rockville festivals, just launched a new weekly concert series called Metallica Mondays.

The plan is to post a new concert every Monday to keep fans busy while they are cooped up at home amid the COVID-19 pandemic. "Need a break from Netflix before you binge-watch the entire library?" they wrote. "Introducing our brand new concert series #MetallicaMondays." The first gig up is a two-and-a-half hour June 8, 2019, gig at Slane Castle in Ireland.
