Video: Metallica Perform Unplugged at Charity Show


We haven’t reported on The Second Most Important Band in Metal in an entire week (!!), so here’s a little Metallica tidbit for ya.

You may recall that Metallica recently announced a special one-off acoustic show in their native Bay Area to benefit their own charity organization, All Within My Hands, and the various funds it supports. That show took place last night at the Masonic in San Francisco with Cage the Elephant opening — tickets ranged between $250 and $1,250 (remember, it was a charity event) — and you can now watch some fan-filmed footage of various songs from the night below, including Metallica classics re-arranged for acoustic instruments, some rare cuts and a few covers.

Here’s the setlist, with some embeds following, via Ghost Cult Mag:

“Disposable Heroes” (rearranged)
“When a Blind Man Cries” (Deep Purple cover)
“The Unforgiven”
“Please Don’t Judas Me” (Nazareth cover) (first live performance since December 5, 2011)
“Turn the Page” (Bob Seger cover)
“Bleeding Me” (abridged)
“Veteran of the Psychic Wars” (Blue Öyster Cult cover) (first live performance since October 28, 2007)
“Nothing Else Matters”
“All Within My Hands” (rearranged, first live performance since October 28, 2007)
“Enter Sandman” (rearranged)
“The Four Horsemen” (abridged)
