Check out this full-set Metallica show from thirty-one years ago!

The concert is from September 23rd, 1989, when the band played the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine, California.

The performance was apparently captured on Lars’ personal camcorder…so the footage is a little grainy…but the band sounds AWESOME.

Filmed on Lars' personal camcorder at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA on September 23, 1989. Don't expect some fancy pro-shot video this time aroun...
