Metallica’s recent Aug. 20th gig in Minneapolis, Minnesota celebrated the opening of city’s U.S. Bank Stadium, the new home of the Minnesota Vikings. Pandora live-streamed the show, which was opened by Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat for the stadium’s inaugural rock concert. U.S. Bank Stadium holds a massive 70,000 people and the concert was completely sold out. Well, if you missed the stream, Pandora is giving fans the chance to stream the entire live show for free at this location. The band’s set-list included the classics, “Creeping Death” and “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” later cuts like “The Memory Remains” and Metallica’s brand new song, “Hardwired” from its upcoming November 18th album, Hardwired…To Self-Destruct.
