Metallica put a new twist on the complete album performance. For the first time ever on Monday they played their iconic self-titled ‘Black’ album from end to beginning instead of beginning to end.
Metallica played Prague and are doing the Black album as part of this tour but fans got a real surprise when they started with the last song ‘The Struggle Within’ and ended with the first one ‘Enter Sandman’.
It was also the first time ever that the Black album songs ‘The Struggle Within’, ‘My Friend of Misery’ and ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ were ever performed live.
The Black album was originally released in August, 1991. It is Metallica’s biggest selling album ever, clocking up over 25 million sales worldwide.
