Regardless of what your weekend looked like or the coming week looks like, I hope you had, have had and will have a great time doing whatever it is that you do.

Thank you for letting The Ultimate Metallica Show be a small part of your weekend each and every week, and even though Metallica have yet to add a holiday tune to their catalog, we still managed to celebrate the season on the most recent show (yes, that means we played "Trapped Under Ice").

If you missed any part of the show, check out the full playlist and recap below.

11 Amazing Metallica Concert Posters From 2022

Even before Metallica announced plans for their 12th studio album, 72 Seasons, 2022 was shaping up to be one of the most memorable years in the band's career.

They put together a massive run of shows across South America, pulled out some live rarities in Europe and tore through the states with big appearances in cities like Chicago and Boston. Most notably, they created an unforgettable live experience for fans with an old-school show in honor of Jonny and Marsha Zazula, Metallica's first-ever managers and co-founders of Megaforce Records. And they will close out the year with an acoustic performance at The Helping Hands Concert in support of Metallica's All Within My Hands Foundation.

As Metallica have done for decades, each live experience in '22 wasn't just about the music, but also about the unforgettable show posters tied to each concert. While we prepare ourselves for Metallica's huge M72 tour in 2023 and 2024, let's take a moment to look back at some of our favorite Metallica concert posters from 2022.

AI Generated Art: Metallica Edition

Using simple text prompts like "James Hetfield" or "Kirk Hammett Guitar," the robots have created some bizarre, and kind of cool, AI art. In the gallery below, you'll see the artificial intelligence creations; underneath each graphic is the text prompt that led to the art.
