Right Now! Livestream Metallica’s “The Night Before” Pre-Super Bowl Performance

0

Is it bullshit that Metallica, one of the biggest bands in the world by any measure, are perennially relegated to playing the night before the Super Bowl while whatever flavor-of-the-moment pop star or aging skeleton of yesteryear gets the real deal, prime time Halftime Show treatment? Absolutely.

But the NFL’s loss is our gain: instead of a 15-minute mash-up performance of stitched together hits, we get a full-on Metallica show, complete with all the “Yeah-yeahhhh-ah!”s and Kirk Hammett wah-wah bends your heart desires. And you can watch it all for free, in real time, thanks to the magic of the Interwebs.

Check it out below, live from AT&T Park in San Francisco. The concert starts at 8:30pm PST / 11:30pm EST, with Cage the Elephant opening. If for some reason the embed below isn’t working, click here to watch from Metallica’s website.
