Metallica’s “Kill ‘em All’ performance Online

After clips of several individual songs were posted online earlier this week, multi-camera footage has now surfaced of Metallica‘s entire surprise set on Saturday, June 8th at the Orion Music + More festival in Detroit, where the band played its 1983 debut album Kill ‘Em All from front to back. Announced under the name DeHaan, the band came on at 4:30 p.m. on one of the festival’s smaller stages for a 10-song set that started with “Hit The Lights” and finished out with “Metal Militia.”

  • Next month is the 30th anniversary of the release of Kill ‘Em All, which was issued on July 25th, 1983.
  • Frontman James Hetfield came onstage first to “introduce” DeHaan, before the rest of the members of Metallica entered behind him and began to play. The group also played a standard headlining set on the main stage the next night (June 9th) to close out the festival.
  • DeHaan is the last name of actor Dane DeHaan, who has the lead role in the band’s upcoming concert/narrative movie Metallica Through The Never. The film will be out in IMAX 3D this fall.
  • At last year’s inaugural Orion festival, which is both headlined and curated by Metallica, the band played both 1991′s self-titled “black album” and 1984′s Ride The Lightning in their entirety on separate nights.
