One Night in San Francisco

The following has been posted on www.metallica.com:

After taking three weeks off we thought it might be fun to play a few small intimate gigs (Kimo's, anyone??) so we called up our close personal friends, The Rolling Stone, to see what they were up to . . . turns out that they are doing a stadium tour of North America!

Nah - seriously . . . last week we were honored to receive an invitation from the Stones to share the stage with them in our home town. After having the thrill of playing with some of our personal heroes such as AC/DC, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, and Ozzy, how could we say no to the quintessential rock band, who are in some way responsible for all of this?

These two shows are about nothing other than having fun and playing music . . . nothing to sell, nothing to promote, nothing to talk about . . . no fuckin' agenda at all. Simply put, this is the reason we started a band 25 or so years ago, and we are psyched and appreciative of this awesome opportunity to get cracking again...

Tickets for November 13th are already sold out, but tickets are still available for the November 15th show. If you are a member of The Metallica Club, check the Metclub.com website to find out how you can purchase a special allocation of tickets, selected just for Clubbers!

Here's the full press release for the rest of the masses:

METALLICA To Special Guest For THE ROLLING STONES In San Francisco On November 13th And 15th At SBC Park

Metallica will be the special guest for the Rolling Stones as part of their A Bigger Bang World tour at SBC Park in San Francisco on November 13th and 15th. An additional opening act will be announced shortly with times for both concerts being moved up an hour to 6pm PST. Metallica joins a diverse list of top opening acts, including THE BLACK EYED PEAS, MAROON 5, PEARL JAM, JOHN MAYER TRIO, LES TROIS ACCORDS, THE TRAGICALLY HIP, OUR LADY PEACE, TREY ANASTASIO, JOSS STONE and BECK.

"Over the course of our career we've been fortunate enough to share the stage with a select few of the bands we grew up on, admired and respected including AC/DC, Deep Purple, Guns N' Roses and Iron Maiden. The only band that we have never played with but have always wanted to is The Rolling Stones," says Metallica's drummer Lars Ulrich.

"Having the opportunity to play with them this November in our hometown of San Francisco is both an honor and a privilege. And it's bound to be a lot of fuckin' fun especially since we haven't special guested since 1992! These shows will enable us to recharge our batteries, both creatively and physically, as we prepare for the next phase of Metallica."
