Founded in 1986 by Pegi Young and Jim Forderer with help from Dr. Marilyn Buzolich, the Bridge School develops and uses advanced technologies to aid in the instruction of children with disabilities. The first benefit concert, in 1986, raised the money necessary to start the school, which opened in ’87.

The 30th anniversary Bridge School Benefit Concert marks Metallica’s third appearance – following sets in 1997 and 2007 – and lands just a few weeks before the band release their new album, “Hardwired…To Self Destruct.”

Due November 18, the follow-up to 2008’s “Death Magnetic” was produced by Greg Fidelman, James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich.

The project has been previewed with a video for the lead track, “Hardwired.”
