Metallica has announced their 7th annual Metallica Night with the San Francisco Giants. The event is scheduled to take place on April 26 at Oracle Park during a home game against the New York Yankees.
Similar to the past seven years, the band will be a big part of the night’s festivities. That includes singing the national anthem, throwing the first pitch, and taking part in between-inning “fun and games.”
The night will also feature a special pre-game VIP event celebrating the launch of the band’s Blackened American Whiskey and their Arrogant Consortia collaboration Enter Night Pilsner. This includes a Q&A with Lars Ulrich, Robert Trujillo and “key players” from their collaborators’ companies about the products, as well as plenty of samples.
Tickets to this special event are on sale now. VIP packages come with a ticket, exclusive Metallica/SF Giants reversable knit beanie and a limited-edition Metallica/SF Giants replica guitar. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket will go to the band’s All Within My Hands foundation, which aids in “creating stable communities by supporting workforce education, the fight against hunger and other critical local services.”
