METALLICA: Pro-Shot Footage Of 'Call Of Duty: Black Ops' Launch-Party Performance

Official footage of METALLICA performing the song "Harvester Of Sorrow" last Thursday night (November 4) in Hangar 8 at Santa Monica Airport, California at a party to promote the release of the new video game "Call Of Duty: Black Ops" can be viewed below.

Regarding its participation at the event, the band previously said in a statement, "Our friends over at Activision, the fine folks who bring you the 'Guitar Hero' games, noticed a small hole in the METALLI-tour schedule in between Australian dates and rang us up to invite us to the launch of their next 'Call Of Duty' game . . . one thing led to another and next thing we know, we're playing at the party!!!"

The statement added that the event would raise funds for The Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit organization that helps soldiers transition to civilian life and assists them in establishing jobs and careers.

METALLICA's setlist was as follows:

01. Creeping Death
02. For Whom The Bell Tolls
03. Fuel
04. Harvester Of Sorrow
05. Fade To Black
06. Cyanide
07. Sad But True
08. One
09. Master Of Puppets
10. Battery
- - - - - - - -
11. Stone Cold Crazy (QUEEN cover)
12. Enter Sandman

This was METALLICA's only U.S. gig for the rest of the year.

Activision released "Guitar Hero: Metallica" in March 2009. The band played a special release party for that game at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas that month.
