Metallica will appear for the first time ever at Comic-Con in San Diego with a special live performance and Hall H Panel on Friday, July 19th in support of the 3D feature film, "Metallica Through The Never."

The band will perform an intimate private concert at a secret location in San Diego. The film's 6:30 p.m. Hall H panel includes all four members of Metallica: James Hetfield (vocals, guitar), Lars Ulrich (drums), Kirk Hammett (guitar, background vocals), and Robert Trujillo (bass, background vocals), along with actor Dane DeHaan (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), director/writer Nimród Antal (Predators, Kontroll), and producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth).

The Hall H presentation will world premiere the "Metallica Through the Never" theatrical trailer and poster, show exclusive preview footage, and discuss the making of the film. Only during the Hall H panel will Comic-con conventioneers in attendance have an opportunity to win tickets and learn the location where Metallica will play later that same evening. Also, the event launches advance ticket sales for the September 27, 2013 opening of the film available online at this location.

"Metallica Through the Never" opens in North America on September 27th, 2013 exclusively in over 300 IMAX 3D Theatres, and will expand into additional theaters on October 4th, 2013.

I PERSONALLY THINK LARS HAS LOST TOUCH WITH HIS DEMOGRAPHIC. HE OBVIOUSLY SURROUNDS HIMSELF WITH YES-MEN WHO AGREE WITH HIM THAT RELEASING AVANT GARDE HODGEPODGES SUCH AS THE LULU FIASCO IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. HE REALLY NEEDS TO GIVE UP HIS HIGH SOCIETY PRETENTIONS AND GET BACK TO SPARTAN THRASH.
