Thu, 04 Feb 2016 12:28:47
The night before Super Bowl 50 kicks off in Santa Clara, California, Metallica will headline CBS Radio's The Night Before, a unique concert experience at AT&T Park in the band's hometown of San Francisco, CA. The concert will mark the band's first performance of 2016.
The Saturday night webcast will be a free 1080p FullHD stream live from AT&T Park, and will be available on mobile and desktop devices at http://webcast.livemetallica.com, or below, delivered by nugs.net. Metallica will take the stage at around 8:30 p.m. Pacific Time. Fans can watch the show live for free and preorder professionally mixed audio recordings of the show as downloads and collectible CDs.
Metallica's Lars Ulrich stated, "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. Even though the show has been sold out for months, Metallica fans around the world will be able to join in on the madness."
The band posted a a gallery of practice photos to Facebook, but there is no word from the band if there will be any other shows in 2016 as of yet. In late December, the band released a short preview on new material they've been working on for their upcoming album, due out sometime in 2016 or early 2017. It has been eight years since the band released their last studio album, Death Magnetic (Blackened Recordings).
