Metallica has taken over Mondays through the duration of the coronavirus pandemic by offering free weekly streaming concerts.
Dubbed “Metallica Mondays,” the concert series will present a different concert every week on the group’s YouTube channel, the band announced just hours before the first show was to be streamed. “While we’re all doing our part and staying home, we find ourselves missing live music, so how about we dive back into a few of our favorite shows at a socially responsible distance?,” the band wrote in a statement. “Not to sound too cheesy, but now more than ever, we’re in this together, and staying connected is how we’ll get through it.”
The concert series, which will be streamed at 8 p.m. EST, will kick off with a June 8th, 2019 performance at Ireland’s Slane Castle.
