Metallica drummer and co-founder Lars Ulrich took his official Instagram account to share a new post and recalled the time when they played at Copenhagen in 1991.
Metallica has been celebrating the Black Album’s 30th anniversary by making a new project, Metallica Blacklist. In this project, musicians are covering all the songs of Metallica’s self-titled album and all the profits are going to the charities.
Recently, the iconic song ‘Sad But True’ is covered by Jason Isbell, and Lars also wanted to share footage of their show in Denmark where they played Sad But True alongside the other songs during the first day of the 1991 tour with AC/DC.
In 1991, Metallica joined a festival alongside Pantera, Mötley Crüe, and headliner AC/DC, Monsters of Rock ’91, in which they made the first rock concert in the Soviet Union that considered as the biggest concert in rock history.
Furthermore, Lars pointed out in the caption that this stage is having a special place in his heart. As Lars said, this is the first place he went to his first concert to listen to Deep Purple back in 1973.
Lars Ulrich wrote:
“How is your Black Album overload treatin’ you? Here’s some more love… There’s now a clip available this morning on our YouTube channel of us playing Sad But True at Gentofte Stadion in Copenhagen during the first show of the AC/DC tour in ’91.
As some of you may know is a stone’s throw away from where I was born. Another small bit of trivia, these snaps are from the rehearsal leading up to the show at K.B. Hallen which is where I saw Deep Purple, my first concert, 18 years earlier.”
