Metallica guitarists James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett will perform the U.S. national anthem before tip-off tonight (June 5th) as the Golden State Warriors host the Toronto Raptors for Game Three of the N.B.A. finals at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. The Canadian national anthem will be performed by Tenille Arts. The game will be carried on ABC in the U.S. and Sportsnet in Canada. The Metallica axemen have also performed the anthem before San Francisco Giants baseball games and San Jose Sharks hockey games. Hammett told that he feels the version of the national anthem they perform is “really unique and different.”
