METALLICA: French Show To Be Filmed For Upcoming DVD?

According to the April 2009 issue of Live Design magazine, METALLICA will take part in a DVD shoot of the band's current "Death Magnetic" tour in July in the south of France. Speculation is that the show being filmed is the July 7, 2009 concert in Nimes, France at The Antic Arena, which is part of the Festival de Nimes. However, this has not yet been officially confirmed.

METALLICA's video for the song "Broken, Beat And Scarred" can be viewed below. The performance clip was shot by METALLICA's longtime friend and collaborator, famed video director Wayne Isham, on December 13, 2008 at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California and December 12, 2008 at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California.

Commented the band: "We're having so much fun out on the road that we thought, hey, why not film it? So we invited our good friend Wayne Isham and his crew to join us for a few shows in California in December of 2008 . . . We go way back with Wayne (several vids from the 'Black' album up through 'Frantic' and the 'Cunning Stunts' DVD) and as always, Wayne rocked it!"

Wayne Isham, 50, is an American movie director who has directed music videos of many popular artists such as MÖTLEY CRÜE, SIMPLE PLAN, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, PANTERA, 'N SYNC, SHANIA TWAIN, GODSMACK, BRITNEY SPEARS, LEONA LEWIS, PINK FLOYD, SHERYL CROW, JOSS STONE, MADONNA, AVRIL LAVIGNE, DEF LEPPARD and BON JOVI, among others.

* Enter Sandman
* Wherever I May Roam
* Sad But True
* Fuel
* No Leaf Clover
* Nothing Else Matters (from "S&M")
* I Disappear
* Frantic

"Broken, Beat And Scarred" is the latest single from METALLICA's "Death Magnetic" album, which has sold 1.7 million copies in the United States since its September 2008 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
