Metallica paid tribute to their founding bassist Cliff Burton during a recent appearance in Italy. Burton died in a bus accident in 1987 and the band took on a performance of the track "Orion" to celebrate what would have been Burton's 56th birthday during a performance at Pala Alpitour in Turin, Italy.

Drummer Lars Ulrich hit Instagram with a video in which he shared a clip of the performance:

"Threw in Orion tonight for Cliff.. the first time in almost a year. A very special moment. Thank you Turin for your generosity and warm vibes. ???? #wanna #metinturin #cliffburton" he captioned.

Burton was also honored recently with a day named in his honor in his hometown in California.
