Metallica frontman James Hetfield turns 57 today, and to celebrate, the metal legends are throwing back to a past birthday show.

Monday night, Metallica will stream their concert from August 3, 2000 as part of their weekly #MetallicaMondays series. The performance took place in Dallas, Texas on Hetfield’s 37th birthday.

You can tune into watch via Metallica’s YouTube or Facebook at 8 p.m. ET.

Metallica launched #MetallicaMondays in March to provide weekly content amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Past streamed shows include ‘Tallica’s 2006 20th anniversary Master of Puppets concert and their rain-drenched 2019 set in Manchester, U.K.

In other Metallica news, a box set capturing the band’s orchestra-accompanied S&M2 shows last fall will be released August 28.
