San Francisco Giants Announce 2014 ‘Metallica Night’

Facebook / Metallica

You’ll have a chance, at an upcoming San Francisco Giants baseball game, to pick up some peanuts, some crackerjacks — and a special-edition Metallica-themed inflatable guitar or pick set.

The Giants are once again sponsoring Metallica Night, this time on May 16 when they take on the Miami Marlins. Members of the band will be on hand for pre-game activities, including the national anthem. All of those Metallica goodies are part of a special-event ticket package.

This follows a similar event held in 2013. “We had such an amazing time last year supporting our local team and hanging at the yard that we jumped at the chance to do it all again,” the band said in a release — promising “all kinds of Metalli-fun and games.” A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Bay Area chapter of Little Kids Rock.

The Giants game is part of a busy summer for Metallica, who have a by-request European tour planned where fans can help the band make its setlist. There has also been talk of a new album, which would be Metallica’s first since ‘Lulu,’ their 2011 collaboration with the late Lou Reed.
