Metallica Share Performance Of Acoustic Cover Of Thin Lizzys Borderline

Metallica have shared video of an acoustic live performance of the 1976 Thin Lizzy classic, “Borderline.”

The band covered the song during their Helping Hands Concert & Auction in Los Angeles on December 16.

The song, which appeared on the Irish band’s seventh studio record, Johnny The Fox, was one of a handful of tunes delivered as part an acoustic set during the recent event.

The show saw Metallica play two unique sets, starting with a five-song acoustic showcase. In addition to “Blackened,” “The Unforgiven” and “Whiskey In A Jar,” this set included covers of “Borderline” and UFO‘s “It’s Killing Me.”

Hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, the show at the Microsoft Theater was to raise funds for Metallica’s All Within My Hands foundation, which works with partners around the world to combat food insecurity, provide funds in areas of natural disaster, and support education with the ground-breaking Metallica Scholars program, now in its fourth year.
