When Metallica pulled out "Enter Sandman" at their European tour opener on June 15, 2022, even they knew it was a momentous occasion.

"After closing the better part of a billion shows," they included in the show notes for the concert, ""Enter Sandman" was moved up to slot number three."

That's right. When Metallica headlined COPENHELL in Copenhagen, they surprised fans by including "Enter Sandman" in their opening one-two-three punch; "Whiplash" and "Creeping Death" were the first two songs in the set. In place of their regular show closer was the epic "Master of Puppets."

Metallica have already released the full show for streaming and downloading and now they've unveiled the first pro-shot live video from their run of shows in Europe. As you may have already guessed, they've graced fans with their powerful and—we'll say it, historic—performance of "Enter Sandman." Watch the live video below.

While Metallica are in Europe, they haven't only been focused on their live shows. As reported earlier, the thrash legends donated approximately $137,000 to help with relief efforts in Germany following a massive flood in 2021. Of course, this isn't the only philanthropic effort made by Metallica; fans can learn more about all of their charitable efforts via their non-profit organization, All Within My Hands.
