Video: Metallica Performs at the 2015 X Games

posted by Oscar June 12, 2015

Get your “devil horns” out… Over the past weekend the 2015 X Games were held in Austin, TX and the over-the-top nature of the event went beyond just the sports competition and included performances from Thrash Metal icons Metallica.

Above you can check out a clip of all that went down behind-the-scenes from meeting fans to rehearsals, before finishing off with the band performing their Kill ‘Em All track “Whiplash.” The band recorded their X Games gig and are now selling digital copies – in MP3, FLAC, Apple Lossless and HD formats – at their Live Metallica website.

Metallica have joined forces with ESPN and Circuit for the Americas to assist victims of recent flooding, for which the band is donating all the money coming in from download sales to the Central Texas Red Cross. All versions cost $5 through July 15th.

Video: X Games Detroit Bid

posted by Oscar May 11, 2013

The “Motor City,” Detroit, Michigan is bidding to host the next edition of the X Games and they’ve put out an excellent, epic video to help their efforts. The X Games Detroit bid team created this video as part of their campaign to bring the ESPN X Games to Detroit; as the producers of the video say “Detroit is where the X Games belong.” After seeing this, I’d be happy if the city that gave us Motown got some more life brought to their streets, especially by way of the famous “Xtreme” sports competition
