Watch Metallica pay tribute to Phil Lynott in Ireland with Whiskey In The Jar cover

Posted on June 12, 2019 at 9:20 PM

Metallica have released a video showing them performing Whiskey In The Jar in front of 75,000 fans last weekend at Slane Castle, Ireland.


The traditional Irish tune was covered by Thin Lizzy in 1973 – and Metallica, who also covered the track on their Garage Inc album in 1998, dedicated the performance to late Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott.


Towards the end of the song, Metallica vocalist and guitarist James Hetfield told the crowd: “We love you, Phil.”


Check out the video below:



After the show, Hetfield posted a picture of himself kissing the Phil Lynott statue in Dublin, adding: "Much respect and love to my favourite songwriter, Mr Phil Lynott.”
