Metallica Performs Under Heavy Rain, Capturing Priceless Moments

Metallica started the 2024 leg of their ‘M72′ tour on May 24 at the Olympiastadion in Munich, Germany. To support their latest album, ’72 Seasons,’ the band has been doing two-night shows without repeating songs in each city—first in Europe, then in North America, and now back in Europe.

During their Munich show, the band had to perform under heavy rain. The moment was caught and shared by fans all over social media and YouTube.

James Hetfield’s Worries About Being On Stage

After Munich, Metallica will keep on touring across Europe for the early part of summer. Then they will kick off another set of dates in North America starting on August 2 in Foxborough, Massachusetts. The band will wrap up their 2024 by playing four shows in Mexico City at the end of September.

In an interview earlier, James Hetfield discussed his mindset about their current tour. He mentioned how big the stage was and admitted to having worries about performing on such a big stage:

“The anxiety level was off the charts at the beginning of the ‘M72’ tour. Like, how are we gonna cover this stage? And, of course, my ego saying, ‘Well, the other guys don’t have to sing. They don’t have to run over there. They don’t have to do all this. And no one knows the woes I have and all the worries.’ But as soon as I share them with the other guys, they’re, like, ‘Yeah, but I got this and I got this.’ It’s like, ‘Oh, okay. Okay. I want mine back. That’s okay.’ So it’s a known. We know what we’re up against and we know what shape we need to be in. And it’s just fun. Now it’s just fun. We broke that stage in. It’s well trodden on and it’s worked fantastically. And so we just get to step back into it and do what we do best.”
