Metallica Teaming Up With The San Jose Sharks
Metallica is extending its sports partnerships beyond baseball and are skating into hockey. The band will join the San Jose Sharks on January 21st, 2015 against current Stanley Cup holders the Los Angeles Kings for a night of “Metalli-hockey mayhem.”
Metallica said in a statement, “We’ll be on hand for the first strains of ‘Seek & Destroy,’ kick off the game with the puck drop, and partake in some of the intermission fun and games that Sharks fans know and love.”
“Metallica Night” tickets go on sale this Wednesday, December 17th and include a “Metalli-Sharks” shirt with a portion of the sales benefiting the San Francisco Bay Chapter of the Sierra Club.
The band will also return to AT&T Park for the third annual “Metallica Night” with the San Francisco Giants in May.
