The show will honor the late Jonny and Marsha Zazula
Metallica have added another show to their North American tour itinerary. The band is heading back to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL on Sunday, November 6. The metal icons will team up with throwback tour mates Raven to honor the late Jonny and Marsha Zazula, who discovered Metallica and released their first two watershed albums on their label Megaforce Records.
“We’re excited to add one more night to the tour calendar this year with a special show at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino,” the band said in a statement. “This night will be extra-special as we’ll be celebrating the life, legacy, and achievements of Jonny and Marsha Zazula.
Jonny gave us our first break in New York, released our first albums on his Megaforce Records label, and put us out on the road for our first real tour. With Marsha by his side, Jonny was a mentor, a manager, a label head, and a father figure to us all…. we would not be where we are today without the two of them. Sadly, we recently lost both Jonny and Marsha, just a little more than a year apart.
We’ll be cooking up a special setlist for you full of songs from our days with Jonny and Marsha at Megaforce. Our main touring partner from that time, Raven, will be joining us to add to the celebration and bring back the memories. Head out to Hard Rock Live and celebrate two heavy metal pioneers and champions with us!”
Tickets for the 7,000-seat theater show will be available starting at 10am EST this Friday, September 30. Metallica Fifth Members will have early access starting this Wednesday, September 28. Visit Metallica.com for more information on the Fan Club presale.
A portion of the proceeds from this show will be donated in Jonny and Marsha’s name to MusiCares, a safety net supporting the health and welfare of the music community offering preventive, emergency, and recovery programs to musicians and industry professionals. Additionally, the All Within My Hand Foundation will once again be supporting Feeding South Florida with a donation following the show.
