Metallica Go Corporate

06/23/2011
.
(hennemusic) Everyone has their price. Metallica must be able to name a fairly hefty one, because they've just confirmed that they'll be playing at one of those corporate (read: BIG bucks) gigs we've heard other artists do.

They won't even have to leave their hometown of San Francisco to do it. "It all started when [guitarist] Kirk [Hammett] mentioned that his next door neighbor had invited us to play at his party in San Francisco and we figured 'why not?'" wrote Metallica to fans. "After all, it has been quite some time since we've played in our hometown, and we haven't exactly been getting out a lot lately. Well, it turns out that Kirk's neighbor, Marc Benioff, is the top dog at a "small" company called Salesforce.com and his shindig actually lasts for four days and hosts over 30,000 people! So much for a little backyard barbeque . . ."

"Following in the footsteps of Neil Young, the Foo Fighters, Black Crowes and Stevie Wonder, we are excited to announce that we have been invited to play at the ninth annual Salesforce.com Dreamforce convention at the Moscone Center in San Francisco on Wednesday, August 31. It promises to be quite the party . . . where else can you learn everything you ever wanted to know about cloud computing during the day and then rock out with the 'Tallica at night?" more on this story
