Metallica will mingle with comic book enthusiasts and fantasy fans at this year’s Comic-Con gathering in California.
All four members of the heavy metal band – James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo – will appear at the San Diego event on July 19, when they will introduce their new feature film, Metallica: Through the Never, alongside writer-director Nimrod Antal.
Devotees will then have the chance to win tickets to see Metallica perform at a mystery venue later on that evening.
Metallica: Through the Never, which hits U.S. theatres later this year, incorporates 3D concert footage with a plotline featuring actor Dane DeHaan as a young roadie for the group.
Comic-Con 2013 will be held from July 17-21.
