This week’s entry in the weekly #MetallicaMondays series, in which Metallica dips into its robust archives to stream a classic gig for fans on YouTube, takes you back to January 2, 1997.

On that night, the band took the stage at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City for a show that was part of the Pour Touring Me tour, when the band’s most recent album was 1995’s Load.

As a result, a couple songs from the album made the set list for the show that the band says “haven’t seen a live crowd too many times in the last two decades, so fans of that album will not want to miss it!”
