Metallica Release Live Footage From Leeds Festival

(hennemusic) Metallica have released video footage of their performance of "Whiskey in The Jar" at the Leeds festival on August 30. The band recorded the tune for their 1998 compilation album, "Garage Inc."

"I'd like to dedicate this next song to a fallen soldier, Mr. Clifford Lee Burton," said James Hetfield as he introduced the traditional Irish song covered by Thin Lizzy. "Who lives with us all and is here in spirit, and this is from his favourite band. This is going to make you bounce. Beware."

Metallica's video highlight package also includes drummer Lars Ulrich, guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo in the meet and greet as well as the group warming up in the Tuning Room before the show.

The Leeds appearance was the sixth and final date on a short run across Europe that saw the band playing a mix of headline and festival shows. Watch the video here.
