Metallica to stream Record Store Day performance

Metallica will stream their 2016 Record Store Day performance live from Berkeley, CA's legendary Rasputin Music on Saturday, April 16 in celebration of the ninth annual event.

“This year we have the distinct honor of being the official Ambassadors for Record Store Day and it’s only fitting that we celebrate by playing live in one of our favorite local hangs, Rasputin Music in Berkeley, CA this Saturday,” says the band. “A few lucky Fifth Members and Rasputin customers have already won their tickets, but we know that many of you might still like to join us in the comfort of your own living room, so we’ve teamed up with our friends at Facebook to bring the show to you via a Facebook Live stream.

“Join us for Record Store Day this Saturday by heading over to our Facebook page after you’ve done your shopping at your local indy music store. We should hit the Rasputin stage around 4:00 PM PDT and will be celebrating the release of the remastered reissues
of ‘Kill ‘Em All’ and ‘Ride The Lightning’ (that’s a hint!). See you live from Berkeley!”

In addition to the remastered reissues of their first two albums, 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.
