Glastallica: Julien Temple’s short film

METALLICA’s Playful Video Response To Animal-Rights Activists Opens ‘Sensational’ GLASTONBURY Set
Glastonbury Festival, June 29, 2014

METALLICA’s appearance Saturday night (June 28) at the Glastonbury festival marked the first time in the U.K.s event’s 44-year history that a metal act has topped the bill.

The heavy metal giants faced much controversy when they were first announced as headliners — drawing criticism for frontman James Hetfield’s apparent support of bear hunting and with many arguing that the band had no place at Glastonbury, a very laid-back type of festival, with more of a hippie/indie vibe than most.

Indirectly responding to a petition— which came in the form of a now-deleted Facebook page — launched last month calling for METALLICA’s removal from the festival, due to Hetfield hosting a new series about bear hunting on the History channel, METALLICA took to the stage last night to a Julien Temple-directed intro video showing a traditional British fox hunt where all four band members played hunt saboteurs, disguised bears, and killing hunters.

The eight-minute video, which can be seen below, was soundtracked by SWEET’s glam rock classic “Fox On The Run” and included a clip of the classic film “The Good, The Bad And The Ugly”, in tribute to actor Eli Wallach, who died this week.

Watch the video below.

 

And I mean…This film was funny and clever and they did an amazing performance at Glastonbury leaving everyone pleased. To imitate a good example!

My best regards to all, Venus
