The history of Metallica is loaded with highlights — many still being made, as the thrash-metal titans remain a global touring act — and starting this week, the band and The Coda Collection will celebrate that legacy with an extensive slate of live performance videos and documentary films from over the years.

The streaming service kicked off this celebration with the premieres of the Metallica concert films Cunning Stunts (a 1998 documentary/concert film) and Orgullo, Pasión, y Gloria: Tres Noches en la Ciudad de México, capturing a gig from 2009.

Coming in the weeks ahead — March 31st and April 7th, respectively — will be Metallica 40th Anniversary LIVE, the band’s special two-night event at the Chase Center in San Francisco that took place in late 2021 and featured “two unique setlists featuring live firsts and deep cuts that chronologically explore the earliest era of the band through present day during night one and then in reverse order in night two.”

Here’s a trailer for the new concert films for those gigs:

The momentous hometown shows, originally presented globally by The Coda Collection and powered by streaming partners Amazon Music and Prime Video Channels last year, will then be followed by the streaming debuts of “A Year and a Half In The Life of Metallica,” the 1992 documentary chronicling the creation of the band’s GRAMMY-award winning self-titled fifth studio album, “Quebec Magnetic,” the concert film documenting back-to-back shows at Colisée Pepsi in Quebec City, Canada on their 2009 World Magnetic Tour, and “Français Pour Une Nuit,” the live performance film showcasing the band’s historic set at Arena of Nîmes in Nîmes, France in 2009.
