After playing 26 stadiums across the US and Canada this summer, Metallica live streamed the final show.

The gig at the 56,000 capacity Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton, Canada was streamed in its entirety on the band’s official website and YouTube channel at approximately 8.45pm local time.

UK fans had to either have to stay up late or set their alarms early, as it kicked off at 3.45am British Summer Time in the morning (Thursday 17th August).

You can re-watch the whole thing below.

Announcing the stream, Metallica wrote: “What a summer!! Thank you to some of the craziest, most passionate, intense avid fans on the planet!!

“This has been another memorable and special summer run for us seeing so many new faces along with lots of old friends as you welcomed us back for our first tour of North America in over eight years.

“As we near the end, we want to share one more evening with all of you by streaming the final night of the WorldWired North American stadium tour live, this Wednesday, August 16th, from Edmonton.

“Tune in as we say farewell to North America... for now (!)”

Metallica’s sprawling WorldWired Tour comes to the UK this October for five sold out arena shows.
