SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS CELEBRATING 'METALLICA NIGHT' THIS FRIDAY

5/1/2013

This Friday (May 3rd) has been declared Metallica Night at AT&T Park in San Francisco, home of baseball's San Francisco Giants. According to a press release issued by the team, members of Metallica will participate in pre-game festivities which will include throwing out the ceremonial first pitch and guitarists James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett performing the National Anthem. The custom Giants-themed guitars that will be played by the pair will be signed immediately following the National Anthem and auctioned off at the Giants Community Clubhouse, with proceeds being shared by the Giants Community Fund and the Bill Graham Memorial Foundation.

 

Metallica said in a statement, "We're psyched to be teaming up with the World Series champs for the first ever Metallica Night...! When the Giants take on their arch-rivals the Los Angeles Dodgers, we'll be on hand that night to kick off the game . . . joining the orange and black fanatics with Metallica vibes and shenanigans throughout the evening to cheer on the team for the first home Dodger game of the season."

  • A special event package will include a ticket to the game as well as a collector's edition Metallica/Giants cap. All fans in attendance will be treated to "Metallica entertainment features" played on the scoreboard throughout the game.
  • Following recent live dates in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates, Metallica will perform on Thursday night (May 2nd) at the Revolver Golden Gods Awards in Los Angeles, where the group will also be honored as "Golden Gods."
  • The band is also gearing up to headline its second annual Orion Music + More festival, scheduled for June 8th and 9th in Detroit.
