Metallica To Release 27 Live Albums

Metallica will be releasing 27 live albums, before the year’s end. There will be one for “virtually every show” that occurred this year. There will also be select shows available on vinyl.

The band released the following statement:

“We’ve been extremely proud to offer virtually every show we’ve done in the past ten years as a download within days of the shows happening… sometimes even hours! Over the years we’ve been able to offer more download options adding HD audio and Apple lossless files to the mix, but we still get requests for the “old school” compact disc. To celebrate ten years of Live Metallica, we’re going to make that happen! Starting today through the end of this year, every show that we’ve played in 2014 will be released on CD! All shows with the exception of the MAP Benefit concert and Glastonbury are from the By Request tour with songs that you voted on… each night on the tour presented a different set list.

We want to keep it simple so we’ll go in order of when the shows were played starting with Bogotá, Colombia, Quito, Ecuador and Lima, Peru from the March South American run. Next week the next three shows will be available and so on, rolling out three shows at a time on Mondays. For those of you who want it all, we’re also giving you a chance to pre-order a box set with all 27 shows included, which will ship in December. There’s that special concept of a volume discount and you’ll have a box to store all your CD’s in. CD’s will be priced at the very clever price of $19.81 a pop with the box set at $417.00 (spot the savings!) and you can place your orders at either LiveMetallica.com or in the Met Store.

And for you vinyl junkies, select shows will be released on limited edition 180-gram vinyl early next year. And once again, we here at your friendly Metallica HQ want your input as to which shows you would like to see on vinyl… YOU choose from the 27 shows we’ve played this year by voting for your favs here. We’ll take the top four that receive the most votes and press them up for you to order in early 2015. Voting will close on September 26.

Let us know what you think and look for many more releases and some cool box sets in the New Year!”
