Metallica Performing At Bay Area Record Store On Record Store Day

It was only a matter of time before we found out what fun stunt Metallica had in store on Record Store Day.

As 2016’s Record Store Day Ambassadors, Metallica will be performing at Rasputin Music, a record store in Berkeley, Calf.  Tickets for this event will be up for grabs via a drawing, which fans can enter in one of two ways:  Filling out a form at Rasputin Music or entering at if you’re a “Met Club” member.

One thing is certain, plenty of cell phones will be out for this performance, so even if you can’t make it, we all will be able to catch bits and pieces from the show.

Metallica will release Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, Metallica! - Live at Le Bataclan. Paris, France - June 11th, 2003, a CD featuring a live recording from the club, with the band, Record Store Day and independent record stores donating proceeds to benefit Fondation de France's Give For France charity.
