Metallica TV shines spotlight on band’s loyal fans

Metallica TV interview four fans who made long trips to see the band perform in Copenhagen last month

Metallica TV have interviewed several of the band’s fans who made long-distance trips to see the group perform in Copenhagen last month.

They played two shows at the Danish city’s Royal Arena in February, with Metallica vocalist and guitarist James Hetfield taking time out to highlight flags from around the world during one of the sets.

He says: “The Metallica family of Copenhagen – but I do see flags for kind of everywhere which is beautiful. That people travel to see Metallica still blows my mind. After 35 years, we’re up here doing what we love and you must be loving it too.”

The channel then catch up with Daria and Aleksander who travelled from Oslo to Copenhagen, Johan, who made the trip from Sweden, and Haider, who came from Iraq to see Metallica perform.

Daria says: “We are following the band because we love them and love the music, but it’s not only the band – we are a family, so the tour is the time when we can meet together with the people of Sweden, Mexico, so it’s not only the band, it’s the Metallica family.”

Metallica have also released a live video showcasing their performance of Enter Sandman, filmed in Los Angeles on February 12. Both videos can be seen below.

Earlier this week, Metallica announced the UK and European leg of their WorldWired tour in support of latest album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct.
