Metallica Release Yankee Stadium Documentary
By Peter Hodgson
Metallica have released a 28-minute documentary on the Big Four show at Yankee Stadium in New York on September 14.
The film includes footage from soundcheck, backstage rehearsals and meet and greets, bass player Rob Trujillo expounding the aesthetics of 13-grain bread, and the epic jam on Motorhead's "Overkill" – featuring members of Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax and Exodus.
The documentary may be viewed for free but it can also be purchased as a high-quality download from LiveMetallica.com
The Yankee Stadium show almost didn't feature one of the four cornerstones of thrash: Megadeth's Dave Mustaine almost had to pull out of the show due to an injury to his neck and shoulder suffered during the recently-wrapped Rockstar Energy Mayhem tour. At the concert Mustaine told Rolling Stone, "I was in a hospital yesterday morning, so I'm going home to get [neck] surgery right after this. It's pretty bad. If I move wrong tonight, I could be paralyzed."
