METALLICA ARE FRANCAIS POUR UNE NUIT
I’m not convinced that any live DVD filmed after about 1992-ish will be particularly flattering to Metallica, but maybe I’m wrong. I haven’t seen them on the Death Magnetic tour – I haven’t seen them since 2006, actually – so maybe they’re killing it out there. Maybe James’ voice is 100% and Lars Ulrich took drum lessons. I dunno.
I guess I’ll find out November 23, when the band releases Francais Pour Une Nuit, a DVD documenting a French concert from this past July. But here’s the kicker: the DVD will only be available in retail stores in… France. Everyone else will have to order it from the band’s website. So, uh, yeah. Not sure what the benefits of doing that are – more profit into the band’s pocket, less shared with retailers, I guess – but there you have it.
You can watch a trailer for the DVD here (it’s not embeddable because Metallica don’t love their fans anymore). After the jump, get details of the various editions of the DVD, plus the complete track list.
The DVD will be available in the following formats:
- Deluxe Limited Edition Box with a DVD/”Death Magnetic” CD/T-Shirt/Laminated pass and lanyard/5 Exclusive Photos
- Standard DVD in digipack/1 DVD including 2 hours of the show, 37 minute interview of the band, 5 videos from the audience/16 page booklet
- Blu-Ray DVD/1 DVD including 2 hours of the show, 37 minute interview of the band, 5 videos from the audience/16 page booklet
