This past Friday, Metallica visited San Francisco's AT&T park as part of Giants' "Metallica Night." James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett opened the game by playing "The Star-Spangled Banner" and Lars Ulrich threw out the first pitch. Hetfield also announced the Giants' starting lineup. You can check out videos of the National Anthem and Hetfield's reading of the lineup below.
Metallica performed a new song, the eight-minute-long "The Lords of Summer," in Bogotá, Colombia, Sunday night. It represents the band's first new original song since the tracks found on their 2012 EP, Beyond Magnetic.
