For the past few weeks, Metallica has streamed a variety of shows from their past on their #MetallicaMondays. Their latest show, however, goes way back into their archive.

Raise your hand if saw them play in Muskegon, Michigan, in 1991. Put it down, you’re lying.

Anyway, that’s where tonight’s show hails from.

“We had to dig through our VHS archive for this one. Get ready for a raw, grainy set from the beginning of the never ending Black Album tour,” a statement from the band read.

That show opened with “Enter Sandman” and closed with “Battery.” There were 19 additional songs and two encores. Also, interestingly, it was the only time that Metallica would play in the city.

You can tune in here.
