Metallica is about to play a concert for the first time in a year, but it will be unlike any concert their fans have ever seen.
The legendary Bay Area heavy metal band is taking its show to the drive-in, playing a pandemic-style concert on big screens across the country on Aug. 29. Fans in the Bay Area can catch the show at two locations: the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton and the West Wind Solano Drive-In in Concord.
Each car will have to pay $115. Tickets go on sale Wednesday to members of the band’s fan club. The general public can grab their tickets starting Friday.
The band announced its plan on social media Monday morning.
“We’re gearing up to record a live show, especially for you, just for you,” drummer Lars Ulrich said in a message to fans.
