On May 17, 1989, Metallica wrapped up a two-night stint at the Koseinekin Hall in Osaka, Japan. This would be the second – and to date, the final – performance in Osaka for the band, and at the time, the fifth time the band toured Japan. In this download, fans will get classic performances of hits like ‘Harvester of Sorrow,’ ‘One‘ and ‘Seek & Destroy,’ but most notable is ‘…And Justice for All.’

Why is a Metallica performance of ‘…And Justice for All’ such a hot commodity? Since the first time they played the song (Sept. 11, 1988 in Budapest, Hungary), ‘Tallica have only jammed it 226 times to date. As the title track to the band’s beloved 1988 album, ‘…And Justice for All’ has turned into a live rarity due to its complexity and length. But for those in Osaka, it didn’t matter if the song would become an infrequent addition to ‘Tallica set lists. “Let’s see if we can get ourselves f—in’ louder, alright,” James Hetfield says to a screaming audience right before they start the tune.

Fortunately for you, downloading this show not only gets you a live performance of ‘…And Justice for All,’ but it also gets you a fantastic set full of ‘Tallica sounding near-perfect. Oh, and did we mention the download is free?
