According to Nuclear Blast, Robert Trujillo will join Kirk Hammett onstage for a special EXODUS encore on July 25th in San Diego. Details of the small and intimate club show are becoming clearer, as Kirk sat with longtime friend and writer Steffan Chirazi recently. “One of the things when we devised our FestEvil earlier this year, was the importance of having great live bands playing after the day’s events,” commented Hammett. “We’re happy to share that pretty unique element of what Fear FestEvil productions brings to our cool horror party and events. So it’s obviously not a whole new Fear FestEvil convention, it’s just a taste of the craziness you find at Fear FestEvil…and rest assured that we are working hard on the full Fear FestEvil II as you read this.”
Scion Audio Visual celebrates San Diego’s enormous comic & entertainment convention with iconic METALLICA guitar player Kirk Hammett and his namesake toy company Kirk Von Hammet Toys with an exclusive, RSVP-only celebration dubbed the “Fear FestEvil After Party” that will showcase a performance by legendary Bay Area thrashers EXODUS on July 25th at F6IX located at 526 F Street in San Diego, California. (NOTE: RSVP for this event is now closed!)
This special EXODUS performance will be highlighted by Hammett joining the band on-stage for a few songs.
Kirk Von Hammett Toys will also present the Famous Zombies Jr. limited edition toy at the year’s San Diego Comic Con. The very limited edition green Hammett figure will be available exclusively at San Diego Comic Con, and Kirk will be signing the toy itself at the Nuclear Blast Records/Stern Pinball/JSR merch SDCC booth 503 on Friday July 25th from 1pm to 2pm, and on Saturday July 26th from 2pm to 3pm.
Fans will be able to purchase tickets for the signing starting on Wednesday July 23rd for the Friday appearance. Once Friday’s tickets are sold-out, Saturday tickets will be released. Tickets are available at the Nuclear Blast Records/Stern Pinball/JSR merch booth (503).
“I’m stoked to be bringing more exclusive wares to the San Diego Comic Con,” says Kirk Von Hammett himself, “Nuclear Blast have been friends for quite some time, so I’m happy to be able to bring one of my exclusives to their booth. Being a fan of comics and movies since I was a kid, it’s just a huge honor to be at Comic Con on both sides, selling and buying!”
Be warned, only a strict 300 of these Nuclear Blast Green collectible classics will be available, so act fast to make sure you’re in line for yours!
