Metallica Releases FREE Concert Download


Metallica have posted a FREE download of a September 21, 1986, London show in support of Master of Puppets.

The concert, which took place at the Hammersmith Odeon, marks one of the band’s last shows with bassist Cliff Burton, who died September, 27 in Sweden after a bus accident.

Tracks include “Welcome Home (Sanitarium),” “For Whom The Bell Tolls,” “Seek & Destroy,” “Whiplash,” “Creeping Death” and “Master of Puppets.” There are 14 tracks in all.

It’s also notable that Kirk Hammett’s guitar tech filled in on rhythm guitar for the show, because James Hetfield had recently broken his arm in a skateboarding accident.

The only downsides to this download are a couple of tape cuts during Master of Puppets and Fight Fire With Fire. But….it’s FREE!

The show is available for download, did I mention for FREE, at
