Metallica’s performance of “Atlas Rise!” can now be seen online! The pro footage was shot as the band performed in front of a packed Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee on January 24 as a part of the World Wired world Tour.
The song “Atlas Rise!” refers to the Titan from Greek mythology, Atlas, who was condemned to hold up the celestial heavens for all eternity.
In an interview, James talked about having drummer, Lars Ulrich, in mind when he wrote the lyrics for the song. “Lars is, ‘I have to do everything, or else it’s wrong. He’s got the weight of so much on him.”
“Atlas Rise!” Is from Metallica’s Hard Wired To Self Destruct album. The band is currently engaged in the World Wired world tour which began in September of 2018.
