On the eve of the nation’s most anticipated sporting event, Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame inductees and Grammy Award-winning rock band Metallica will headline CBS Radio’s The Night Before, a one-of-a-kind concert experience the evening prior to Super Bowl 50 at AT&T Park in the band’s hometown of San Francisco, CA. The concert marks the band’s first performance of 2016.
Metallica fans around the world will be able to tune in to a live webstream direct from the historic show. The webcast will be a free 1080p Full HD stream live from AT&T Park, available on mobile and desktop devices at livemetallica.com, delivered by nugs.net. Metallica will take the stage at approximately 8:30 pm PST. Fans can watch the show live for free and pre-order professionally mixed audio recordings of the show as downloads and collectible CDs.
“We can’t wait to play our first show of 2016 and there’s nowhere we’d rather kick off the festivities than in our own backyard,” said Metallica’s Lars Ulrich. “Even though the show has been sold out for months, Metallica fans around the world will be able to join in on the madness.”
“We’ve released audio recordings of every Metallica show for the past 12 years at LiveMetallica.com, so naturally we’re excited to deliver the band’s first live HD stream from their hometown on their own web site,” says nugs.net founder and CEO Brad Serling.
The free Metallica webcast follows a string of highly successful payperview webcasts for nugs.net, including four nights of Phish at Madison Square Garden over New Year’s, and last summer’s Grateful Dead “Fare Thee Well” shows at Soldier Field.
Buddy Iahn founded The Music Universe when he decided to juxtapose his love of web design and music. As a lifelong drummer, he decided to take a hiatus from playing music to report it. The website began as a fun project in 2013 to one of the top independent news sites.
