METALLICA TO PERFORM NATIONAL ANTHEM, THROW OUT FIRST PITCH AT GIANTS GAME

2/8/2013

The San Francisco Giants have announced that Metallica will throw out the first pitch and perform the National Anthem at the world champion baseball team's May 3rd home game at AT&T Park, which will be dubbed Metallica Night. The Giants will be playing against the Los Angeles Dodgers that night. Metallica was originally formed in L.A. in 1981 but moved to San Francisco the following year to recruit bassist Cliff Burton and be part of that city's heavier underground metal scene.

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich joked a while back that Metallica is always willing to play any kind of gig that comes its way: "When I say we'll show up and play stadiums, arenas, you know, basements or backyard barbecues, I mean that seriously."

Special event tickets for the game go on sale this Saturday morning (February 9th) at 8:00 a.m. PT.

Special event tickets include a limited edition Metallica/Giants hat. According to Loudwire, a portion of the ticket sales will be donated to the Bill Graham Foundation, which strives to give grants in the area of music, the arts, and education, while also supporting social work, environmental protection, and spiritual and compassionate projects in the San Francisco community.
