Excellent Video Footage Of METALLICA's Historic Performances In Mexico City - Includes Detailed Views Of Their NEW State Of The Art Stage Setup!
As previously reported, the Kings of Thrash Metal, METALLICA, returned to Mexico for six memorable performances at the Sports Palace in Mexico City on August 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, and 9. The band unveiled their NEW stage: a 140x50-foot stage that features colossal components and striking visual elements spanning Metallica's 30-year career.
"After years in the making, we are beyond excited to finally unveil the all new, out of control, massive stage and Metalli-show to some of our most rabid fans in the world.
"When we last visited Mexico City in June of 2009, those three sold out nights with over 150,000 of our craziest friends at Foro Sol Stadium were some of the most memorable, over the top, insane shows we have ever played. Last year we returned with a brand new show that features your favorite iconic elements spanning our entire 30 year touring career all on a massive stage that is twice the size of the World Magnetic set up... we think it's something that needs to be seen to be believed!!!
"Mexico was the first to see what will be the cornerstone of our touring escapades for years to come. Don't be scared boys and girls, this is going next level and we are just getting started!"
