Metallica – Live at Grimey’s
On June 12th, 2008, on the eve of METALLICA’s headlining performance at the Bonnaroo Music Festival, crowd favorites METALLICA played an intimate, surprise performance at The Basement, an 150-capacity venue below Nashville record store Grimey’s New & Preloved Music. In attendance were ecstatic Metclub fan club members, Grimey’s staffers, a few lucky friends, and members of local law enforcement agencies.
Live at Grimey’s, which includes such highlights as “Welcome Home (Sanitarium),” a blistering “Master of Puppets,” and “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” will be released on standard CD plus as a limited-edition two-disc set on regular-weight 10” vinyl with a gatefold jacket.
