Metallica Black Box is the band’s online memorabilia museum


Metal veterans Metallica are diving back into their history with the launch of the Metallica Black Box. It’s an online museum of memorabilia curated by the band, including all manner of photos from their personal collections. The site will also be the place where fans can watch 10 video recordings of performances from Metallica’s 1991-1993 tour supporting ‘The Black Album’.

These aren’t free: they will be launched as livestream ‘watch parties’ every week, with fans able to chat to one another while viewing. Tickets for the first, which airs on 20 November, cost $5.98. Metallica worked with Definitive Authentic on the site, which also has a merch shop, with plans for a physical installation in 2022 as well.
