METALLICA Performs 'Suicide & Redemption', 'The Ecstasy Of Gold' For First Time

METALLICA performed the "Death Magnetic" track "Suicide & Redemption" for the first time ever last night (Monday, July 27) at the Forum in Copenhagen, Denmark. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be viewed below. Earlier tonight (July 28), the band treated the Copenhagen audience to another word premiere — METALLICA's live performance of "The Ecstasy of Gold", the song from the classic film "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" which has been opening METALLICA live shows since 1983.

METALLICA's cover of "The Ecstasy of Gold" was released in February 2007 via Sony Classical as part of a tribute to composer Ennio Morricone, also featuring some of the greatest names from the worlds of contemporary pop, rock, jazz, and classical music.

METALLICA's setlists for the last two Copenhagen shows (out of a five-date run) were as follows:

METALLICA filmed its July 7, 2009 concert in Nimes, France for an upcoming DVD release, but the catch is that the disc will be available only in France and through METALLICA's official website, Metallica.com. Since it's a French product, you'll also need an all-region DVD player in order to watch it in North America. The DVD will arrive on October 19. METALLICA also documented its three recent shows in Mexico City for DVD, although that looks like it will be released in Latin America only.

METALLICA will be touring Europe through early August. The band starts a North American trek on September 14 in Nashville as it continues supporting 2008's "Death Magnetic" album.
