When the Big Four announced their upcoming date at Yankee Stadium on September 14, undoubtedly the first thing that came to mind for many Yankees fans was “Enter Sandman.” The 1991 Metallica classic has been a staple of Yankees games for years, heralding the entrance of the greatest relief pitcher of all time, Mariano Rivera. Lest fans be worried the band might leave the song off the set list, James Hetfield has appeared in a new video on the Yankees homepage to set their minds at ease.
In the video, Hetfield says, “Hold on, Mo. Hey, Yankee fans. This is James here from Metallica. And we know that ‘Enter Sandman’ over the last decade has been played here in the Bronx because of #42. Now is your chance to hear it live, here, in your house.”
The Big Four also released a trailer for the concert last week, which can be seen below.
