METALLICA returned to the stage on Tuesday night (February 7) with a live performance in Copenhagen, Denmark that was initially supposed to be the third of a four-night stand at that city’s Royal Arena. The first show was cut short on Friday evening (February 3) when frontman James Hetfield took sick.
Hetfield was put on entire vocal rest the next day, forcing the band to postpone the second concert on Sunday (February 5).Download Our App

As previously reported, the band will perform with pop superstar Lady Gaga at the 59th annual Grammy Awards this Sunday evening (February 12). The news concerning the collaboration, which had not been officially announced, broke on Monday evening (February 6) after a Gaga fan saw the collaboration promoted on a TV commercial for the Grammys and tweeted about it.
It isn’t yet known which track METALLICA will play at the event, which will air live Sunday night from the Staples Center in Los Angeles at 8:00 p.m. ET on CBS.
The band had beforehand promised “something unique and special” for its Grammys performance. The group is up for the Grammy Award for “Best Rock Song” for the track “Hardwired” from its new album, “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”.
Following the Grammy Awards on Sunday, METALLICA will play an intimate concert for round 3,000 or so followers at the Hollywood Palladium.
