Metallica Will Play an In-Store Show at Berkeley’s Rasputin Music on Record Store Day
Metallica will play an intimate gig at the Berkeley record store on Saturday, April 16. Of course, it will be a hot ticket, and in order to snag one, you have to visit Rasputin some time between now and April 10 to fill out a ballot to be entered to win admission to the show. Metallica fan club members can enter to win at the band’s website. Read up on the guidelines right here.
“Getting loud, noisy and sweaty at Rasputin’s on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley transports Metallica right back to the core of its Bay Area beginnings,” Lars Ulrich said in a press release. “We can’t wait to celebrate Record Store Day while shaking up the East Bay old-school style.”
Record Store Day will take place in stores all across the country (and internationally) on April 16. You can find participating shops here. Last year, Metallica released the No Life Til Leather cassette, and it ultimately became RSD's best-selling release of 2015. For the 2016 installment, the band will issue Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, Metallica! – Live at Le Bataclan, a live album recorded at the their 2003 concert at the theater where 89 people were killed during a terror attack at an Eagles of Death Metal concert in November.
