Metallica To Rock National Anthem + Throw Out First Pitch at San Francisco Giants Game

With a new album in the works, a 3D film set to arrive in the summer, plans for a second Orion Festival and a headlining gig at Revolver’s Golden Gods Awards, Metallica have a busy 2013 ahead of them. And now the year got even more awesome with the announcement that the band will step up to the metal plate by performing the National Anthem and throwing out the first pitch at the San Francisco Giants game May 3 as part of the first ever Metallica Night at AT&T Park.

The World Champion Giants will be playing against their arch rivals the Los Angeles Dodgers in a game that will even be more explosive with Metallica’s performance of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner.’

Special event tickets for the game go on sale this Saturday morning, Feb. 9, at 8AM PT. Go here to purchase your tickets. The special event ticket package includes a limited edition Metallica/Giants hat (which, as you’ll see in the poster below, is pretty dame awesome). A portion of the ticket sales 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 our community.

The pairing of the Giants and Dodgers is even more appealing considering that Metallica formed in L.A. but ended up settling in San Francisco during their early years. For more information on the event, go here.
