METALLICA's LARS ULRICH To Host 'Front Row' Event At University Of California

METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich will be at the University of California in Berkeley on March 2 to bring together his most inspiring friends and colleagues from the worlds of music, design, film and tech to explore why many of the world's creative leaders and thinkers choose the Bay Area as their home.

Says METALLICA: "We've always been proud of our Bay Area roots, so when the University of California in Berkeley came to us with a very unique opportunity to celebrate our hometown, we jumped on it.

"On Wednesday, March 2 at 7:00 p.m. at Zellerbach Hall on the UC Berkeley campus, Lars will kick off the very first Front Row in conjunction with the Student Curators of Cal Performances.

"Joining Lars on stage will be, GREEN DAY's Billie Joe Armstrong, chairman and CEO, Salesforce Marc Benioff, bassist Les Claypool, actor and activist Peter Coyote, James Hetfield (yes, our very own), filmmaker Jonathan Parker ('Untitled', 'Bartleby', 'The Californians', 'The Architect'), co-founder of Turner Duckworth, designer David Turner ('Death Magnetic', 'Lulu' and 'Through The Never' album packages), and Lars' father Torben Ulrich, who at 87 is still active in music, film and poetry. The night promises a one-of-a-kind experience exploring creativity and the collaborative process, storytelling and independent thinking from a diverse group of innovators."
