San Francisco Giants to host 5th annual Metallica Night

Major League Baseball’s San Francisco Giants will host the 5th annual Metallica Night at AT&T Park on August 7.

“In what has become one of our favorite hometown traditions, we’re excited to announce that the San Francisco Giants have once again invited us to celebrate a night on the field with them,” says the band. “The annual event will take place on Monday, August 7, 2017 against the World Champs, the Chicago Cubs, and yes, you saw that headline right – this year marks number five!

“As has become custom, the night will kick off with the National Anthem and first pitch, then we’ll be on hand all night to cheer on the orange and black as we take part of some of the between innings festivities. We look forward to seeing you at the yard for another exciting season of baseball!”

Special event Metallica ticket packages include a ticket to the game and a limited edition Metallica/Giants T-shirt with a portion of the proceeds from every Metallica Day special event ticket sold benefiting The Posey Family Foundation.

There will also be an exclusive VIP event that night in Triples Alley with Lars hosting a pre-game Q & A with tennis coach, commentator and author Brad Gilbert to talk sports, music and more. Tickets to that event will also be on sale, again benefiting The Posey Family Foundation.

On Thursday, February 9 at 10:00 AM PST there will be a presale for Met Club members... log in to the site at that time for a link to purchase your tickets to the game early.

VIP Triples Alley tickets will not be available at this time, but never fear . . . you may purchase your game tickets during the pre-sale and come back on Saturday at 10:00 AM PST when ticket upgrades will be available.
