Metallica is a favorite among their Bay Area home teams
Metallica’s annual Metallica Night with the San Francisco Giants is expanding to include the another Bay Area sports franchise: The San Jose Sharks NHL team.
The band will be on hand on January 21st as the Sharks take on the LA Kings for a night of “Metalli-hockey mayhem” where they will kick off the game with the puck drop and partake in “some of the intermission fun and games that Sharks fans know and love.”
“We have been long supporters of the Sharks going back to the mid-90’s when the team moved permanently to San Jose,” the band writes. “Over the years we’ve made many treks down to the Shark Tank. So it’s actually pretty fitting that we finally connect with the team for a night of metal and hockey and we want you to come along and partake of the festivities with us.”
Special Metallica Night tickets are now on sale and include a one-of-a-kind commemorative Metallica themed Sharks t-shirt when purchased through the Sharks’ website. A portion of every ticket will benefit the San Francisco Bay Chapter of the Sierra Club.
