Former HANOI ROCKS singer Michael Monroe joined Robert Trujillo and Kirk Hammett on stage earlier tonight (Wednesday, May 9) during METALLICA‘s concert at at Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland to perform his solo song “Dead, Jail Or Rock ‘N’ Roll”. Video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
The original recording of “Dead, Jail Or Rock ‘N’ Roll” was featured on Monroe‘s second album, “Not Fakin’ It”, which was released in September 1989 through PolyGram. The accompanying video featured GUNS N’ ROSES singer Axl Rose and received substantial rotation on MTV. It was later covered by WARRANT on that band’s 2002 album “Under The Influence”.
METALLICA has played 23 shows in Europe since early February and has one more Helsinki date booked before taking a three-month break from the road.
The band recently announced the details of the 2018-2019 North American leg of of its “WorldWired” tour in support of the group’s latest album, “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”.
The 34-date trek kicks off September 2 in Madison, Wisconsin and runs through March 13 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Each ticket purchase will be accompanied by a physical or digital copy of “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”.
The 2017 dates on the “WorldWired” tour, which included stadium shows across the U.S., grossed $110.3 million in North America and $152.8 million worldwide.
