METALLICA: Pro-Shot Video Of Entire Concert In Hämeenlinna, Finland

Professionally filmed video footage of METALLICA's entire July 16 concert in the Finnish city of Hämeenlinna can be seen below. The show was attended by 55,000 people — about one percent of the country's total population. Ahead of the sold-out gig, the band donated 55,000 euros to the Finnish children's charity Hope Ry — one euro for every member of the audience.

All four members of METALLICA met with the charity organization before their concert, to learn more about their work which involves distributing clothing and other essential items to children in need, or families going through a crisis.

Eveliina Hostila, executive director of the charity, told Ilta-Sanomat that the money will be used to support the hobbies of over 200 children for a full year.

METALLICA's set included a Finnish-language song. Bassist Robert Trujillo and guitarist Kirk Hammett performed a cover of "Kuuma Kesä" ("Hot Summer"), originally written and recorded by the Finnish rock band POPEDA.

METALLICA's setlist was as follows:

01. Hardwired
02. The Memory Remains
03. Disposable Heroes
04. The God That Failed
05. The Unforgiven
06. Here Comes Revenge
07. Moth Into Flame
08. Sad But True
09. No Leaf Clover (followed by Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo solos)
10. Frantic
11. One
12. Master Of Puppets
13. For Whom The Bell Tolls
14. Creeping Death
15. Seek & Destroy

Encore:

16. Spit Out The Bone
17. Nothing Else Matters
18. Enter Sandman

The Hämeenlinna concert was part of METALLICA's "WorldWired" tour, which has played more than 130 shows across the world since its 2016 kick-off.

The San Francisco Bay Area metal giants have been touring in support of their latest album, "Hardwired… To Self-Destruct", which came out in November 2016.

Last November, drummer Lars Ulrich told The Mercury News that the trek could last through early 2020.
