Metallica Members To Perform U.S. Anthem At Game 3


Heavy metal icons Metallica are lending their talents to the Golden State Warriors.

Guitarists James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett will perform an electric version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" for the Bay Area crowd before Game 3 of the NBA Finals tonight.

The series between the Warriors and the Toronto Raptors is tied 1-1 as it heads to Oracle Arena in Oakland for the next two games.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famers have called the Bay Area home for decades, and have performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" for their home teams numerous times over the years, including before a Giants vs. Yankees game earlier this season.

Metallica also performed the anthem before Game 5 of the 2015 NBA Finals.

The Canadian anthem will be performed at Game 3 by Tenille Arts and at Game 4 by Walk Off The Earth.
