Metallica do All American Football and Baseball
Metallica have baseball and American football on their minds this week.
On the baseball front, they've booked a fourth annual Metallica Night with the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park on May 6th against the Colorado Rockies. They'll perform "The Star-Spangled Banner," throw out the first pitch and stick around to pop up in between innings. Tickets go on sale Friday in the U.S., and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Surfrider Foundation and Amnesty International.
On the gridiron, they've recorded a special video message for Virginia Tech football coach Frank Beamer, who's retiring at the end of the season. Since the 2000 season, "Enter Sandman" has been Virginia Tech football's unofficial theme song. Check out the message on YouTube.
