Metallica continues to perform songs from across its vast back catalog on the North American leg of the hugely successful WorldWired Tour. Fans of the thrash metal giants can check out newly posted hi-def footage of the nine-time Grammy winners performing their setlist staple “Seek and Destroy.”
The “Enter Sandman” hitmakers posted the performance on Dec. 10 via Facebook, following the wrap up of their 2018 road schedule on Dec. 8 in Fresno, California. The “Seek and Destroy” performance was filmed on Dec. 2 in Spokane, Washington, at Spokane Arena.
“Seek and Destroy” was the first song Metallica ever recorded in the studio and was included on their 1983 debut album Kill 'Em All. The track has become fan favorite over the years and remains one of the multi-platinum seller's most frequently performed songs.
The crowd roars its approval as guitarists James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett shred through the song's familiar opening riff. Drummer Lars Ulrich thunders aboard, setting up the first verse as Hetfield sings, “We are scanning the scene in the city tonight/We are looking for you to start up a fight.”
Following a break for the holiday season, Metallica will return to action in 2019, starting with an appearance Jan. 16 in Los Angeles at The Forum as part of the star-studded event “I Am the Highway: A Tribute to Chris Cornell.” The WorldWired Tour is set to recommence in North America on Jan. 18 in Tulsa, OK, at BOK Center and wrap up March 13 in Grand Rapids, MI, at Van Andel Arena.
