CBS RADIO will celebrate SUPER BOWL 50 with a concert featuring METALLICA. The show is set for SATURDAY, FEB. 6, 2016 at AT&T Park, home of the SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS. METALLICA’s JAMES HETFIELD made the official announcement live in studio during an appearance with morning show host KEVIN KLEIN on CBS RADIO Alternative KITS (LIVE 105)/SAN FRANCISCO, the band’s hometown.
"How cool is this?” said LARS ULRICH, co-founding member of METALLICA. “SUPER BOWL madness, AT&T Park and METALLICA all coming together in one over-the-top hometown gig. We are of course beyond psyched and extremely honored to be flying the flag for not only BAY AREA music, but for heavy music in general at CBS RADIO’s The Night Before 2016 edition. Get your dancing shoes ready, 'cause this is going to be one next-level, uniquely crazy event!”
“We could think of no band other than METALLICA worthy of headlining such a major event in SAN FRANCISCO as the city plays host to the SUPER BOWL,” said CBS RADIO Pres. ANDRE FERNANDEZ. “CBS RADIO’s The Night Before has quickly become an anchor of our annual concert lineup, and we are ready to share the energy and excitement of the show with thousands of music and sports fans. It’s going to be one of the most memorable nights in SAN FRANCISCO music history.”
