Watch Metallica close out Lollapalooza with 'Master of Puppets'

The band paid tribute to 'Stranger Things' during the performance

On July 28th Metallica headlined the first night of the 2022 iteration of Lollapalooza, and closed out their set with a raging “Master of Puppets.” Now, the thrash legends have shared new pro-shot footage of the performance.

The title track from their 1986 album recently experienced a surge in popularity after its inclusion in season four of Netflix's Stranger Things, hitting the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the first time ever. 

In tribute to the popular series, Metallica projected clips of the Season 4 finale scene where character Eddie Munson (played by Joseph Quinn) shreds “Master of Puppets” in the Upside Down onto the jumbotron screens behind them during the performance.
