Now you can watch Metallica’s full Old School Tribute Show for Jon + Marsha Zazula

Metallica played some pretty memorable shows in 2022, and one of the standout performances of the year has emerged as a fully edited video, which you can revisit below. The show in question was the band’s John and Marsha Zazula tribute show that took place back in November in Hollywood, Florida.

The show was a special one for the band as they chose to pay tribute to the late Megaforce Records founders Jon “Jonny Z” Zazula and his wife Marsha, who played a key role in the discovery and development of the band in the early 80s. As such, the group played a setlist dedicated to their Megaforce era, delivering a punch with material from their first two albums, Kill them all and RID the lightning. The night also featured an opening set from Raventhe veteran metal band that often played shows with Metallica in the early years.

“Jonny gave us our first break in New York, released our first albums on his Megaforce Records label and put us on the road for our first real tour. With Marsha by his side, Jonny was a mentor, a manager, a label head and a father figure to all of us… we wouldn’t be where we are today without the two of them,” Metallica said at the outset announces the show. The band also included a 10-minute video tribute to the couple who helped launch their careers, which can be seen here.

“I want them to know that we are so grateful,” James Hetfield commented. “Without that step in our career, we wouldn’t be where we are today.”

A portion of the proceeds from the show were donated in Jonny and Marsha’s name to MusiCareswhich helps with the health and welfare of musicians through preventive, emergency and recovery programs.
