Metallica delighted fans at the Power Trip festival in Indio, California, on October 8th with a captivating performance of their 1997 hit “Fuel.” Now, the band is generously sharing a professionally shot video of this electrifying moment.
This high-energy performance of “Fuel,” a track from their Reload album, took place in the midst of a 16-song set that headlined the festival’s grand finale, which also featured other legendary acts like Guns N’ Roses and AC/DC. The Power Trip festival was a three-day extravaganza that had fans on the edge of their seats, and Metallica’s appearance was undoubtedly a highlight.
The Power Trip festival marked a significant stop on Metallica’s M72 World Tour, an extensive journey in support of their latest album, 72 Seasons. This album, recorded at the band’s headquarters in San Rafael, California, between 2021 and 2022, boasts production credits from the talented Greg Fidelman and the band’s own James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich. When it was released in April, the album made an impressive debut by claiming the top spot on the US Album Sales chart.
For Metallica fans, the journey doesn’t end with the Power Trip festival. The band has more in store, with two upcoming shows set to take place in St. Louis, Missouri, in early November. Their 2023 tour will then conclude in Detroit, Michigan, next month, promising more thrilling moments for those who can’t get enough of them. Metallica continues to be a beacon of rock excellence, and their future remains as bright as ever.
