It may not be part of their typical repertoire, but Metallica performed an Oasis tune during a recent visit to Manchester. During a Saturday (Oct. 28) show at the Manchester Arena, Robert Trujillo and Kirk Hammett led fans in a sing-along of the Manchester-based group’s 1995 hit “Don’t Look Back in Anger,” as a gesture of solidarity and respect to residents of the English city. (WATCH VIDEO BELOW.)
The tune has become something of a local anthem in Manchester in the wake of a terror attack that happened at an Ariana Grande concert in the city last May. Twenty-two people were killed in the suicide bombing, which happened at the Manchester Arena.
Drummer Lars Ulrich posted a video of the performance with the caption “What a moment!! Goosebumps..” to his Twitter page following the concert Saturday. He followed that up with another tweet, adding: “Thank you Manchester for your show of perseverance, of unity, of defiance and, ultimately, of love!”
Metallica will be playing shows in Antwerp, Belgium tomorrow (Nov. 1) and Friday (Nov. 3). After that they’ll return to the U.S. to perform their last scheduled concert of the year on Nov. 9 in San Francisco.
