Metallica sure love their Bay Area sports. The San Francisco Giants have partnered with the band in the past, and now the San Jose Sharks hockey team is getting in on the action. The Sharks comes out to “Seek and Destroy” at every game, so it seems fitting that Metallica be on hand for one of those games!
Said James Hetfield, on the night that the Sharks beat the Kings 4-2:
“Keep it local. We love that the fact we are considered a mainstay of this area and obviously the Sharks are as well so to be joined together makes perfect sense.”
Fans could purchase special tickets which came with a Metalli-Sharks shirt, with part of the sales going to the San Francisco Bay Chapter of the Sierra Club. These Bay Area sports teams owe a lot to the late Cliff Burton, who lured Metallica to San Francisco because he didn’t want to move to LA to join the band!
