Metallica announce Record Store Day performance

2016 Record Store Day Ambassadors Metallica will perform live at Berkeley, CA's legendary record store Rasputin Music on Saturday, April 16 in celebration of the ninth annual event.

"Getting loud, noisy and sweaty at Rasputin's on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley transports Metallica right back to the core of its Bay Area beginnings," says drummer Lars Ulrich. "We can't wait to celebrate Record Store Day while shaking up the East Bay old-school style."

Rasputin Music customers and Met Club members are invited to be in the audience by entering to win tickets to this very intimate performance.

Record Store Day will also see Metallica issue a special release of “Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, Metallica! - Live at Le Bataclan. Paris, France - June 11th, 2003.”

Record Store Day and independent record stores will be donating proceeds from the project’s release to victims of the attacks in Paris last November via Fondation de France's Give For France charity.
