Metallica announces Facebook Live rehearsal livestream

Metallica¬†has announced “Now That We’re Live,” a live rehearsal special from M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore that will stream exclusively on Facebook Live on Tuesday May 9th at 9 pm EST, the eve of their inaugural show for the North American leg of the WorldWired Tour 2017. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees and multiple-Grammy Award winning band will warm up the stadium stage with a full-scale rehearsal performance.

The ‘Now That We’re Live’ rehearsal special will feature Metallica performing four songs in their entirety (including their current single, “Now That We’re Dead”). The presentation will offer fans an early glimpse of the groundbreaking production elements of the WorldWired tour and will be available for on-demand viewing following the live stream via Metallica.com and the band’s Facebook page.

“We are psyched to share some of our rehearsals and final pre-production run-through with our friends around the world, and we hope you’ll come hang with us as we fire up the engines for the North American Summer run,” states Lars Ulrich.

A very limited number of lucky Fifth Club members will have the opportunity to attend the event by entering to win at Metallica.com.

Viewers will also be able to donate on Facebook Live to Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation, which supports a cross-section of national, local and Bay Area charities that the individual band members support, as well as music education programs and local food banks.

This is one of “a few more goodies coming your way” the band has planned. They just announced the May 5th release of Live At Webster Hall on triple vinyl that will be available via their web store and impending pop-up stores they’ve yet to announce.
