Metallica and the San Francisco Giants have announced the fourth annual "Metallica Night," to be held on Friday, May 6th, 2016 at AT&T Park in San Francisco as the Giants take the field against the Colorado Rockies. Metallica will once again throw out the first pitch and perform a version of America's national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner." The band said, "We'll stick around all night to cheer on the orange and black with all the loyal fans and keep your eyes peeled to spot us participating in some in between inning action."
- Special-event tickets for this game go on sale as part of Orange and Black Friday (November 27th) at 8:00 a.m. PST. The ticket package includes a ticket to the game and a limited-edition Metallica/Giants goodie, the details of which will be revealed at a later date.
- A portion of the proceeds from every "Metallica Night" special-event ticket will benefit the Surfrider Foundation and Amnesty International.
- There is a pre-sale for Met Club members on Wednesday (November 25th) at 10:00 a.m. PT.
- Metallica has been working recently on its 10th studio album, which could come out in 2016 or possibly early 2017.
