In late June, 2007, Metallica embarked on a “Sick of the Studio” tour of Europe, playing various festivals and stadiums across the continent.
This included two gigs in Lisbon, Portugal on June 27 and 28, and the show on June 28 is the focus of the latest installment in #MetallicaMondays, the thrash metal icons‘ weekly archival upload.
The show will premiere on the Metallica YouTube page tonight, July 6, beginning at 8 p.m. EDT/5 p.m. PDT:
This show was noteworthy in that Metallica performed ” … And Justice for All” for the first time since 1989, as well as a full performance of the Diamond Head cover “Am I Evil?”, which is also a rarity in the band’s live catalog.
For Whom the Bell Tolls
Ride the Lightning
…And Justice for All
The Memory Remains
The Four Horsemen
Fade to Black
Master of Puppets
Sad But True
Nothing Else Matters
Am I Evil?
Seek & Destroy
As the band has done since 1983, Metallica takes the stage at this show to the epic sounds of Ennio Morricone’s “The Ecstasy of Gold,” which has long been as much a staple of a Metallica concert as the band’s music itself.
The famed Italian composer passed away this weekend at 91, prompting Metallica to issue a warm remembrance on social media:
R.I.P. Ennio Morricone
Your career was legendary, your compositions were timeless. Thank you for setting the mood for so many of our shows since 1983. pic.twitter.com/ac1QZ9QLPs

Recent #MetallicaMondays uploads have featured shows from Bogota in 1999, Madrid in 2008, Melbourne in 2013, a rain-soaked Manchester, England in 2019, Salt Lake City in 1997, 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.
