Metallica are getting ready to take on an entirely new venue for the band - an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con. The band will participate in a Q&A session on July 19 about their upcoming IMAX release Metallica: Through the Never
Nimrod Antal, the director of the film, Charlotte Huggins, who is one of the producers, and the movie's main actor Dane DeHaan will also be on hand to take questions.
But of course you can't have an event with Metallica that only involves talking. Said the band in their announcement: "We can't just TALK about the film when we are in San Diego... we want to play too! Following our chat in Hall H at Comic-Con, we'll be heading out to a super-secret spot to have some fun and hit the stage."
The band also said that Comic-Con attendees will have the chance to win tickets to the live performance during the Q&A. Members of Metallica's fan club, Met Club, will also have a chance to win tickets. NYTimes.com reports that 500 free tickets will be distributed to the concert portion of the band’s appearance.
