A video recap of the September 12 VIP premier event for DEF LEPPARD‘s “VIVA! Hysteria” at Cineworld in London, England, including fan reactions from the screening, can be seen below.

DEF LEPPARD‘s recent Las Vegas extravaganza will hit the silver screen for two nights in October. NCM Fathom Events together with AEG Live and Network Live are bringing DEF LEPPARD “Viva! Hysteria” concert to over 250 theaters across the country with a full front-to-back performance of 1987’s multi-platinum “Hysteria” album — along with a healthy dose of the band’s greatest hits. Tickets for the screenings are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, singer Joe Elliott shed some light DEF LEPPARD‘s recent Vegas residency at the 4,000-capacity Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, explaining, “We’ve been asked for many years if we’d ever play an album in its entirety, and the answer was always no because we’d be out promoting a new album. Then in March and April 2013 when we had no new music to promote, we had a chance to revisit arguably our most important album. It was an easy decision to make.”

He went on to say that the stigma involved in rock musicians playing “Sin City” has long passed: “As for Vegas, it’s no longer perceived as the place crooners go to die! Artists like MÖTLEY CRÜE, ELTON JOHN, GUNS N’ ROSES and CHEAP TRICK have recently done residencies and rock n’ roll has definitely moved in! So, there was no better place for us to take the show. It was a fantastic experience for us and for our fans.”

Joe Elliott told The Pulse Of Radio that the band’s humble beginnings back in England never even hinted at where they’d be today. “35 years after starting out in a little school in Sheffield, and then the next thing we’re doing a residency in Vegas,” he said. “It was never on the agenda back then, y’know? But being in a band more than seven or eight years wasn’t either. So, at this moment in time you’re just kinda making things up as you go along, because, things just keep appearing for us. Like; ‘Hey — you guys fancy doing this?’ ‘Well, that’s something we’ve never done.’ And as soon as we can say that out loud, it’s appealing for us to do it, ”cause it gets you off the treadmill.”

The theatrical showings will be followed by a companion DVD, Blu-ray and live album that Elliott tells Billboard.com will chronicle “the whole shebang” — not only the “Hysteria” set but all of the other songs DEF LEPPARD played over the two nights the show was filmed.

“VIVA! Hysteria – Live at the Joint, Las Vegas” will be made available on CD, Blu-ray disc, DVD Video, and digital download in October at your favorite music retailer.

Official MetOnTour video recap of METALLICA‘s August 25 concert at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta, Indonesia can be seen below. The 20-minute clip includes a tuning-room segment, the pre-show huddle and “Cyanide” from the concert.

The band’s setlist was as follows:

01. Hit The Lights
02. Master Of Puppets
03. Fuel
04. Ride The Lightning
05. Fade To Black
06. The Four Horsemen
07. Cyanide
08. Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
09. Sad But True
10. Orion
11. One
12. For Whom The Bell Tolls
13. Blackened
14. Nothing Else Matters
15. Enter Sandman

Encore:

16. Creeping Death
17. Fight Fire With Fire
18. Seek & Destroy

The governor of Jakarta, Indonesia, Joko Widodo, attended the concert in the city — 25 years to the day after the release of the band’s fourth album, “…And Justice For All”, and more than 20 years after their tumultuous first show in Indonesia.

“I am happy and satisfied with the concert,” Widodo said after the show. “No one got out of control. We showed them that Jakarta citizens are all dignified. We could rock the night away in an orderly fashion.”

60,000 Indonesian metal fans attended the concert, where more than 2,000 security personnel were deployed.

METALLICA‘s last show in Indonesia took place in 1993 — at the peak of the band’s commercial popularity while they were on the road supporting the mega-selling “black” album. One of the biggest shows that Indonesia had ever hosted, it ended with a riot that saw angry fans — many of whom were trying to get into the concert for free — burning cars and destroying public property, as well as sustaining countless physical injuries while fighting with the police.

Back in May, Widodo had to turn over his autographed METALLICA bass guitar to the government temporarily, while authorities determined whether the instrument was merely a gift or a violation of ethics rules. Widodo received the bass from METALLICA bassist Robert Trujillo, but had to give it up to the state within 30 days, according to laws regarding gifts to state officials.

Official MetOnTour video recap of METALLICA‘s August 24 concert at Changi Exhibition Centre in Singapore can be seen below. The 16-minute clip includes a band photo shoot, a tuning-room segment, and “Broken, Beat & Scarred” from the show.

The band’s setlist was as follows:

01. Hit The Lights
02. Master Of Puppets
03. The Shortest Straw
04. Ride The Lightning
05. Fade To Black
06. The Memory Remains
07. Broken, Beat & Scarred
08. Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
09. Sad But True
10. …And Justice For All
11. One
12. For Whom The Bell Tolls
13. Blackened
14. Nothing Else Matters
15. Enter Sandman

Encore:

16. Creeping Death
17. Battery
18. Seek & Destroy

The members of METALLICA gave a press conference in Singapore, just before the band’s first-ever concert in China, where they were asked how they deal with the physical demands of touring after 30 years. Lead guitarist Kirk Hammett said, “I do a lot of yoga. We’re all pretty physical. [Bassist Robert Trujillo] and I like to surf. We just got off a week-long stint in Bali, surfing a lot. You know, it’s important to keep maintenance on the road — eat well, sleep well, and just make sure the engine inside is running well. It’s really important. ‘Cause the last thing I wanna do is drop on stage.”

Drummer Lars Ulrich added, “We have two guys downstairs who take care of stretching us and putting us back into shape — our necks and our arms and everything. They’re among the two hardest-working guys in rock and roll. So we take all that stuff really seriously. I mean, if you could see our [tour] rider, it’s carrots and strange vegetables and nasty fruit juices. It’s not what it was back in the day, thankfully. But yeah, we do take [staying healthy] very seriously. Absolutely.”

Ulrich told The Pulse Of Radio a while back that his main concern about getting older as a musician was whether aging and other issues could eventually take their toll on him. “The thing that just freaks me out is I just don’t know physically,” he said. “‘Jumping Jack Flash’ and ‘Satisfaction’ — sure, I can probably play those when I’m 65. Playing ‘Fight Fire With Fire’ and ‘Dyer’s Eve’ — I don’t know. It’s the unknown. I just don’t know. And if it becomes a joke, or if it becomes just not physically possible to do, then hopefully we’ll have the sense to bow out gracefully.”

Frontman James Hetfield told the press in Singapore, “We’ll do this until we don’t wanna do it anymore; it’s as simple as that. There’s no use doing something your heart is not in. But for us, we love what we do and we’re blessed that way.”

METALLICA was in Toronto last night (Monday, September 9) for the premiere of the band’s new film, “Metallica Through The Never”.

The 3D IMAX movie will open on September 27 at IMAX theaters and expanding on to additional screens on October 4.

METALLICA will also play a special show at the Apollo Theater in New York City on September 21 to promote the release of the film.

METALLICA played for the first time ever in China last month, doing two sold-out shows at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai on August 13 and August 14. The first night sold out in record time and faster than any other Western act that has played the country before.

Official video recap of the second Shaghai show — featuring footage of the tuning-room jam and the “Leper Messiah” performance from the concert — can be seen below.

Following are excerpts from METALLICA‘s August 14 press conference in China (courtesy of Time Out Shanghai).

On filming a documentary in China:

Lars Ulrich (drums): New experiences bring opportunities for new collaborations and new creative endeavours — it’s that simple. Being here in this wonderful country and feeling the energy and excitement, the idea came up to celebrate it and to try to document it and to try to get the experience out. As you know, there are a lot of you, and there may be 20,000 of you who came to this arena yesterday and today, so we figured that if we filmed and shared the experience then maybe we could get to more of you and maybe there could be a next-level relationship between METALLICA and China that could last for decades. The idea came up fairly last minute and we love creative endeavours where we make it up as we go along. There’s an impulsive energy that comes with that that can be very beautiful and kind of cool and the last few weeks this idea came together of filming here and maybe bringing some local bands into it and bringing some actors in and maybe some way bridging this into the ‘Through The Never’ movie that we made in the United States. We are making this up as we go along, but it’s all being documented — everything we do is always documented — so we’re excited about that and we think that there is something cool that will come out of it. Whatever that is, we’re not quite sure yet, but we’ll do our best to make it shareable and worth everybody’s while.”

On interaction with Chinese fans:

Ulrich: “We’ve been doing meet-and-greets and the interactions with the fans have been very emotionally engaged; they’re very appreciative and thankful that we’re here. Obviously there is a language barrier. What we try to do, we try to loosen the moment with banter and so on and some of that doesn’t seem to translate when there’s language issues or whatever, but you can feel that there is a passion and that there’s been a longing for this moment that is really special. Most of the time, the communication just comes from the audience when you’re up on stage. You sense what’s going on and what’s coming back at you. People all over the world have different ways of expressing and you sort of learn that there is a correlation between the way people express themselves in different cultures to what they throw at you in gigs. In Italy, they’re very much like passionate southern Europeans, in Latin America this happens, and in certain Nordic countries, they’re a little more conservative. You learn those patterns along the way, but you could obviously sense that this moment had been a long time coming.”

On piracy and bootlegged METALLICA goods being sold in China:

Ulrich: “The one thing increasingly that we focus our energies on is trying to discern between what we can control and what we can’t control. Increasingly, getting wound up and spending a lot of time on things that you can’t control, it’s just… I’d rather FaceTime with my kids or do something else. It is what it is. And that’s a whole separate conversation about Chinese copyright issues, which maybe is not the time to do now. You can’t control that, so you just turn a blind side to it as best you can.”

METALLICA is teaming up with SiriusXM radio to bring back the Mandatory Metallica channel and will celebrate with a special show at Harlem’s world-famous Apollo Theater in New York City on September 21 that will air live nationwide.

The only other international live date on METALLICA‘s schedule for the rest of 2013 is September 19 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Next up for METALLICA is the release of the band’s 3D movie, “Metallica Through The Never”, which arrives in limited release on September 27 before expanding its run on October 4. A soundtrack album arrives on September 24.

The movie is part concert film and part fictional narrative, with the latter centering on a roadie played by Dane DeHaan who must go on a mysterious mission for the band during the course of a live performance.
