Professionally filmed video footage of METALLICA performing the song “Fuel” on July 5 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida can be seen below.
The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame band is touring in support of its tenth studio album, “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”, which came out last November, eight years after “Death Magnetic”.
METALLICA has just resumed its first North American tour in more than seven years. The trek marks the first time that METALLICA has offered “enhanced” or “VIP” experiences for fans, with some willing to cough up as much as $2,500 for personal meetings, photos and autographs from the group.
Support on the quartet’s first North American trek since 2009 is coming mainly from AVENGED SEVENFOLD and VOLBEAT, with GOJIRA taking over for the latter group for the last six shows.
“Hardwired… To Self-Destruct” was certified platinum on April 12 by the RIAA (Recording Association Of America). The platinum certification reflects a million equivalent album units, which blends traditional album sales, tracks sold from an album and on-demand audio and video streams.
The recent gain in “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct” sales is owed mostly to a concert ticket/album bundle sale redemption promotion with the band’s stadium tour that went on sale on February 17. Redemptions of albums included with the purchase of a concert ticket register as a sale in the week the customer redeems/receives the album.
