Metallica To Release Live DVD From French Concert

Metallica are poised to release a live DVD entitled ‘Francais Pour Une Nuit’ (translation: French For One Night) on 23 November. This will be their first ever French concert DVD. It was filmed at the Roman Coliseum in Nimes, France in July of 2009.

‘Francais Pour Une Nuit’ is an electrifying full length live DVD. The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse -that is, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo- ride into Nimes and make their entrance into the Coliseum, through the gladiator’s tunnel, before performing an explosive set of Metallica music. Fans can also look forward to some exclusive backstage footage.

‘Francais Pour Une Nuit’ is unique in that not only was it filmed in France, but ALL aspects of the project are French…other than the band themselves, of course! The concert was filmed, recorded, and edited with French camera and recording crews; the artwork was created by a French design team (including a one-of-a-kind special package); even credits are in French.

In keeping with this Franco-phile theme, the DVD will be available in retail stores in France only. However, due to a strong demand from Metallica fans around the world, ‘Francais Pour Une Nuit’ will be made available on a direct-to-consumer basis through Universal Music (Metallica - Home <http://www.metallicanimes.com> ), as well as the band’s own website (Metallica.com <http://www.metallica.com> ).

‘Francais Pour Une Nuit’ follows the multi-platinum success of ‘Death Magnetic’, Metallica’s critically acclaimed tenth studio album. ‘Death Magnetic’ was the first Metallica album to ever hold the #1 slot in the UK for two consecutive weeks. It also reached #1 in thirty countries around the world, with worldwide sales approaching five million copies.

The band took their mammoth “World Magnetic” tour on the road last year, which broke the record for the biggest attendance at London’s 02 Arena last September, and broke it again in March 2009. Metallica returned to the UK in August for a triumphant headline slot at the Sonisphere Festival.

Formed in Los Angeles in 1981 by drummer Lars Ulrich and guitarist and vocalist James Hetfield, Metallica has become one of the most influential and commercially successful rock bands in history, having sold 100 million albums worldwide and playing to millions of fans the world over. The band were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in April of this year.

The DVD will be available in the following formats:
* Deluxe Limited Edition Box with a DVD/”Death Magnetic” CD/T-Shirt/Laminated pass and lanyard/5 Exclusive Photos
* Standard DVD in digipack/1 DVD including 2 hours of the show, 37 minute interview of the band, 5 videos from the audience/16 page booklet
