The concert will later be made available to stream and air via PBS on April 08th. Metallica commented:

Elton and Bernie have been collaborating for 56 years and counting, and together, they have penned some of our lifetime’s most memorable and influential songs. We are thrilled to celebrate this honor with them, and we look forward to an incredible evening of unique performances from their remarkable collection of songs.”

Elton John has long been a fan of Metallica and appeared alongside Miley Cyrus, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, Metallica‘s own bassist Robert Trujillo, and more on a cover of “Nothing Else Matters“. That rendition appeared on a 2021 tribute to Metallica‘s 16x multi-platinum self-titled album.
