Metallica going “old school” with live CDs

Posted by on September 17, 2014

Metallica has been offering digital downloads of their live performances for the last 10 years, and they still get “requests for the ‘old school’ compact disc.” To celebrate this decade-long milestone, the band is now making nearly every show they performed in 2014 available for purchase in CD format.

“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.”

The CDs will be priced at $19.81, along with an option to pre-order their 27 show collection in a box-set for $417, which will ship mid-December. In addition, four shows will be pressed to 180-gram vinyl, based on fan voting which, at the time of writing this post, has already garnered 23,337 votes. Those records will become available sometime, “early next year.”
