Metallica fans pumped to catch the thrash metal giant during an upcoming stop on the band's current North American tour leg can whet their appetites with concert footage of the band performing their single “The Memory Remains.” The performance was captured during the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's recent tour stop on Nov. 28 in Boise, Idaho, at Taco Bell Arena.
The nine-time Grammy winners posted the hi-def clip on Dec. 3 via Facebook as they wrap up the last few U.S. road dates remaining in their 2018 touring year. “The Memory Remains” was originally released as the lead single from their 1997 studio album Reload and notably featured Marianne Faithfull on backing vocals.
Metallica frontman James Hetfield plays cheerleader, goading the audience to sing along in their “loud voices.” Adoring fans happily oblige, screaming along as Hetfield begins the first verse, singing “Fortune, fame, mirror vain, gone insane/But the memory remains.”

It's available here in standard, deluxe and limited edition versions in digital, CD, cassette, streaming and vinyl formats.
