METALLICA’s James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett will perform the National Anthem this Sunday (June 14) during Game 5 of the NBA Finals featuring San Francisco’s Golden State Warriors.
“We’re incredibly lucky to have another winning team here in the Bay Area as the Golden State Warriors took the NBA Western Conference title and are facing the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals,” METALLICA said in a statement. “By now we’re guessing that you’ve noticed that we like to support our home sports teams, so to continue in that tradition James and Kirk will be on hand at Game 5 on Sunday, June 14th. They’ll be performing the National Anthem before the game as the Warriors resume their quest for the title back at home at Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA that night. Tune in to your local ABC station to watch the performance live, game time is 8:00 PM Eastern and GO DUBS!”
