Watch Metallica’s Full 1999 Set From Colombia

Metallica’s debut show in Bogotá, Colombia was one for the ages – watch it in full now!

Yesterday (June 29) was the fifteenth instalment of Metallica Mondays, the weekly gig series where the Four Horsemen dive into their massive vault of archive footage and stream full shows in their entirety.

This week we’re transported 21 years back in time to Bogotá, Colombia, for Metallica’s first-ever show in the country. Recorded two weeks after the band’s first S&M show, this history-making concert was the second show on the Garage Remains The Same tour, having kicked off in Mexico City some two days prior.

The setlist, which you can see below, is pretty epic. “We opened with that?!” asks Lars in a state of shock in the video’s intro, responding to the bold choice of opening with Breadfan.

In fact, there are a lot of tracks in the set that are seldom included these days, such as Of Wolf And Man, Bleeding Me and their cover of Misfits’ Die, Die My Darling.

Check out the full two-hour set below.

As well as looking back to 1999, Metallica are also looking to the future. Earlier in the month, Lars Ulrich revealed that the band have been exchanging ideas over Zoom and email, explaining how they’re in “discovery mode” in quarantine.

“We are sending ideas to each other via email and via Zoom and [trying to] make music in these unusual situations,” he said. “We have a weekly Zoom connect. We’ve been doing that basically since [the coronavirus pandemic] started 10 [or] 11 weeks [ago] – since it started in America. So we get together once a week on Zoom for a couple of hours and catch up.”

Lars continued: “…now that we’ve started exchanging some ideas, it’s great. It’s nice to be in touch, it’s nice to be part again of that group, and I look forward to the creative opportunities that lie ahead of us.”
