Do you still need black wristbands to play a Martin? Does that aggressive stance work for fingerpicking? Will there be sweat?
All those questions will be answered October 27 and 28 when Metallica perform acoustic sets at the 21st Annual Bridge School Benefit Concert at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA.

Other performers include:
Advance tickets are $150.00 and $75.00 for reserved seating and $39.50 for general admission, plus applicable service charges.
The Bridge School is an institute for children with disabilities both physical and verbal. Neil Young began organizing a concert to benefit the school after its instructors cured him of a high, mournful whine.
