‘Metallica Night’ To Be Held By San Francisco Giants In May

On Thursday, the San Francisco Giants announced that May 3rd’s game against the Dodgers at AT&T Park will play host to “Metallica Night.”

As the name suggests, fans who attend the World Series Champs’ Friday, May 3 game against the Dodgers can expect a full night of Metallica-themed entertainment. The band will be throwing the first pitch – exactly who isn’t known – and will also be performing the National Anthem.

The Giants say that fans who pick up a “Special Event Ticket Package” for Metallica Night will receive a special edition baseball cap that shows off the Metallica and Giants logo, both in the team’s black-and-orange colors. Ticket sales for the event have already gone live.

According to the Metallica website, a portion of the ticket proceeds will be donated to the Bill Graham Foundation, a charity that provides grants to art, music, and education programs, while “also supporting social work, environmental protection, and spiritual and compassionate projects in our community.”

Here’s what the band had to say about the event:

“We’re psyched to be teaming up with the World Series champs for the first ever Metallica Night at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Friday, May 3! When the Giants take on their arch-rivals the Los Angeles Dodgers, we’ll be on hand that night to kick off the game with the National Anthem and first pitch, joining the orange and black fanatics with Metallica vibes and shenanigans throughout the evening to cheer on the team for the first home Dodger game of the season.”
