Finally something good about the massive over-saturation of Super Bowl coverage. Or do I need to refer to it is The Big Game, because RARA’s Farm is not yet the Official Rock Blog of the NFL? In any case, under the super-catchy name, “The Night Before” Metallica will be playing a concert, which will be streamed live in HD for free!
I’ve never seen these legendary rockers live, so I’ll probably tune in. What’s the chance they play this one?
Here are additional details from their press release:
SAN FRANCISO, CA – FEBRUARY 3, 2016 – On the eve of the nation’s most anticipated sporting event, Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame inductees and Grammy® Award-winning rock band Metallica will headline CBS Radio’s The Night Before, a one-of-a-kind concert experience the evening prior to Super Bowl 50 at AT&T Park in the band’s hometown of San Francisco, CA. The concert marks the band’s first performance of 2016.
Metallica fans around the world will be able to tune in to a live webstream direct from the historic show. The webcast will be a free 1080p FullHD stream live from AT&T Park, available on mobile and desktop devices at http://webcast.livemetallica.com, delivered by nugs.net. Metallica will take the stage at approximately 8:30p PST. Fans can watch the show live for free and pre¬order professionally mixed audio recordings of the show as downloads and collectible CDs.
“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,” said Metallica’s Lars Ulrich. “Even though the show has been sold out for months, Metallica fans around the world will be able to join in on the madness.”
“We’ve released audio recordings of every Metallica show for the past 12 years at LiveMetallica.com, so naturally we’re excited to deliver the band’s first live HD stream from their hometown on their own web site,” says nugs.net founder and CEO Brad Serling.
