As we build up to the 2013 edition of the Download Festival – which is now less than three weeks away, we thought we’d try and pick out some of the best clips around on the Internet of some classic Download performances. To kick things off with a bang, we’re taking the short hop back in time to last year to check out Metallica’s performance of Enter Sandman, which rounded off their complete run through of the Black Album in it’s entirety (from back-to-front).
Whilst Enter Sandman is always an enjoyable listen (and watch), this particular performance has become legendary for those who were present for James Hetfield’s mid song singalong and audience participation segment. Don’t take our word for it, see for yourselves, and all together now, “Metallica’s Fammmillleehhh”:
Download 2013 kicks off on the 14th of June 2013 (camp site opens 12th of June 2013) and is headlined by Slipknot, Iron Maiden and Rammstein. You can still grab tickets from the official website as well as all the other usual online ticketing locations. We’ll be posting a few of these classic Download clips between now and then, so keep checking back to see what we find.
