This week’s trip through the Metallica vaults, part of the thrash/metal band‘s ongoing #MetallicaMondays archival series, is slightly different from the rest.

(Click here to pre-order S&M2, the new live album from Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony, from our Rock Cellar Store).

Documenting a gig from Sept. 23, 1989 at Irvine Meadows Amphitheater in Southern California, this show won’t be like prior entries in the YouTube series, which were officially-filmed and edited productions. No, this one is “bootleg camcorder footage,” per the band’s announcement:

“Don’t expect some fancy pro-shot video this time around,” warns the Metallica YouTube page for the stream, which will go up Monday night, July 27 at 8 p.m. EDT/5 p.m. PDT:

As seen in the artwork, this show came during Metallica’s Damaged Justice tour, which was celebrating 1988’s ambitious album … And Justice for All. The set list from the show:

For Whom the Bell Tolls
Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
Harvester of Sorrow
The Four Horsemen
The Thing That Should Not Be
Bass Solo
Master of Puppets
Fade to Black
Seek & Destroy
…And Justice for All
