The members of Metallica are set to host multiple premieres of their 3D concert film, Metallica: Through The Never next week. After performing at New York’s Apollo Theater Saturday night for SiriusXM, the band may or may not appear at Yankees Stadium for the team’s farewell ceremony for Mariano Riveras on Sunday (Sept 22nd), who has made “Enter Sandman” his walk out anthem. One thing for sure is that the band will split up to host individual movie premieres across the country opening weekend.
The band kicks off opening weekend festivities by hosting two late night showings each on Thursday, September 26th. Singer/guitarist James Hetfield will appear in the band’s hometown of San Francisco at 10 pm at a theater to be announced and then later that night head to the AMC Emeryville for a premiere at 12:15 am in San Francisco. Tickets for the latter are available for pre-order through Fandago.
Drummer Lars Ulrich will hit up SoCal by appearing at TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood at 10 pm. Tickets are available through Movie Tickets. Later that night, Ulrich will also appear at 12:01 am at another Los Angeles area theater to be determined.
Lead guitarist Kirk Hammett will be at the AMC Wayfair (Wauwatosa) in Milwaukee, WI at 10 pm and then head an hour and a half south to Chicago, IL to appear at the AMC Woodfield (Schaumburg) for a 12:15 am premiere that same night.
Bassist Robert Trujillo will hit the East Coast with a 10 pm premiere at the AMC News Brunswick in News Brunswick, NJ and then trek an hour south to Philadelphia, PA to make an appearance at the AMC Franklin Mills at 12:01 am that same night.
Ulrich, Hammett and Trujillo continue their theater tour on Friday, September 27th with double showings each. Ulrich will appear at the AMC Tyler Galleria in Riverside, CA at 4:30 pm and then the AMC Norwalk in Norwalk, CA at 7:35 pm.
Most of the premiere showings average around $15-18 per ticket, not a bad price to see your favorite Metallica member in person, and are available for pre-order by clicking the links above.
