Metal, Rock

Metallica last played Minneapolis two years ago while on the cusp of releasing their 10th album, Hardwired... to Self-Destruct, only performing one song from the then-unreleased LP. Unlike other 21st-century Metallica records like St. Anger or the Lou Reed collaboration Lulu, the album would be warmly received, an almost all-thrash 77-minute marathon produced by heavy-music veteran Greg Fidelman (Slayer, Black Sabbath). The band is beginning the 12th leg of the WorldWired Tour, during which they’ve been playing roughly half of Hardwired... in addition to ’80s and ’90s classics.
