Metallica fans I hope you’re sitting down, the band are set to release a gargantuan new box-set of 27 records.

The box-set features recordings of all 27 shows played by the band in 2014, including their headline show at Glastonbury.

As well as Glastonbury, the collection features their acoustic benefit concert for MusicCares with covers of covers of Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Diary of a Madman’, The Beatles’ ‘In My Life’, and Deep Purple’s ‘When a Blind Man Cries’. The remaining 25 shows were part of the band’s ‘By Request Tour’,which featured setlists handpicked by fans.

In a statement Metallica wrote: “We’ve been extremely proud to offer virtually every show we’ve done in the past ten years as a download within days of the shows happening… sometimes even hours! To celebrate ten years of Live Metallica, we’re going to make that happen! Starting today through the end of this year, every show that we’ve played in 2014 will be released on CD.”

The whole set will be released in December, and can be pre-ordered here for €324.

The group will also be making four of the concerts available in special 180-gram vinyl editions, and are allowing fans to vote on which shows will be pressed via an online poll.
