METALLICA Perform "Whiskey In The Jar" In Tribute To THIN LIZZY While In Ireland
Metallica broke out their classic Thin Lizzy cover of "Whiskey in the Jar" during their June 8th performance at Slane Castle in Meath, Ireland. They dedicated the performance to the memory of late Thin Lizzy vocalist Phil Lynott. At the end of the song, you can hear James Hetfield saying "We love you, Phil." This was their first performance in Ireland since 2009.
Earlier in the day, Hetfield posted a photo visiting a statue of Lynott writing "Much respect and love to my favorite songwriter, Mr. Phil Lynott."
