This was the first time in over 10 years that Metallica performed at The Forum outside of Los Angeles.
This gig was a celebration of the life and music of Chris Cornell and benefitted the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation as well as The Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to raising funds and awareness for this painful and debilitating genetic disorder. This was one of the causes that Chris cared deeply about and supported through his commitment to helping others.
Metallica performed two Soundgarden songs from their first full-length album Ultramega OK.
Metallica performed four songs from the following albums: Ride the Lightning (1), Master of Puppets (1), and Non-Album Tracks (2).
