METALLICA Bassist Interviewed By Canada's AUX Channel; Video Available

Ontario, Canada's AUX music channel conducted an interview with METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo when the band played at Air Canada Centre in Toronto at the end of October. Watch the chat below.

METALLICA's French-only concert DVD, "Francais Pour Une Nuit", or "French For One Night", arrived on November 23. The disc is available at all retailers in France, but is also for sale worldwide at the band's web site. Trujillo told The Pulse of Radio that he expected it to be a special release. "What I've seen of it, it's very beautiful," he said. "We're playing in a Roman coliseum and it's a beautiful night, an incredible crowd. It's special for me, and I connect with the French as well. My wife's from Paris, I have a great time when I'm there, I even have surfed there a few times. France is cool. This is a special moment for them, it's a special moment for us."

In addition to the band's complete 18-song set, the disc also includes interviews with the group and five video clips shot by members of the audience.

A statement posted on the band's website said, "ALL aspects of the project are French as the show was filmed, recorded, and edited with French camera and recording crews, the artwork on the package and special box set (more on that in a minute!) were created by a French design team; even the credits are in French."

The DVD comes in three formats: standard DVD or Blu-ray, in a digipack with a 16-page booklet, and a deluxe limited edition box set that includes the DVD, a copy of "Death Magnetic" on CD, a T-shirt, laminated pass, and exclusive photos.

13 of the 18 songs the band performed at the Nimes concert aired on October 10 on the French TV channel Canal+.
