Last year, Metallica supported their local baseball team, the San Francisco Giants, by singing the national anthem and throwing out the first pitch at the team’s first home game of the season, against the rival Los Angeles Dodgers. Now, the group has just announced that they’ll be back to do it all over again for the second annual Metallica Night, which will take place on Friday, May 16.
“When the Giants take the field that night against the Miami Marlins, we'll be on hand to kick it off with the national anthem and first pitch, joining the orange and black faithful for the rest of the evening for all kinds of Metalli-fun and games,” writes the band in a joint statement on its website .
Tickets for the upcoming game will be available starting November 29 at 8 a.m. PT. In addition, everyone who picks up a ticket will receive a limited-edition piece of Metallica/Giants merchandise, which will be revealed at a later date.
