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!”


The set list from the Salt Lake City ’97 gig:

So What
Creeping Death
Sad but True
Ain’t My Bitch
King Nothing
Wasting My Hate
Bass/Guitar Solos
Nothing Else Matters
Until It Sleeps
For Whom the Bell Tolls
Wherever I May Roam
Fade to Black
Seek & Destroy / Fight Fire With Fire

The stream went live at the Metallica YouTube page at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT Monday night, June 1, watch it below:

Recent Metallica Mondays uploads have featured shows from Peru in 2014, a very early gig from 1983, and more.

As always with the Metallica Mondays series, the show will be available on YouTube on-demand after tonight’s debut, so if you can’t watch the stream when it goes “live” you can still enjoy it later.
