Metallica acoustic covers set

Yesterday, May 12th, Metallica performed a four-song acoustic set at the MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert honoring Ozzy Osbourne in addition to Jeff Greenberg of Village studios. The Los Angeles event saw Metallica perform the following songs:

01. I Just Want To Celebrate (Rare Earth)
02. When A Blind Man Cries (Deep Purple)
03. In My Life (The Beatles)
04. Diary Of A Madman (Ozzy Osbourne)

Metallica comments: "We had a great time down in Los Angeles honoring our hero Ozzy Osbourne at the MusiCares MAP Fund Benefit. We dusted off our acoustic guitars and had fun with a short set of cover songs including Rare Earth's 'I Just Want to Celebrate', Deep Purple's 'When a Blind Man Cries', Ozzy's favorite Beatles song 'In My Life' and, finally, 'Diary of a Madman'."

Fan-filmed footage of the covers can be seen below.
