On the recent Birmingham stop of their current tour, Metallica took some time to pay homage to the city’s hometown heroes Black Sabbath. Singer James Hetfield pauses to re-introduce Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo then lets them take over to lead the crowd in singing a low-key, stripped-down version of the iconic “War Pigs.” I guess if they couldn’t get Ozzy himself out there again just yet this is a pretty decent substitution. Watch fan-filmed footage below.
