Metallica shared the following:

"We're excited to add one more night to the tour calendar this year with a special show at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, on Sunday, November 6, 2022. This night will be extra-special as we'll be celebrating the life, legacy and achievements of Jonny and Marsha Zazula."

"Jonny gave us our first break in New York, released our first albums on his Megaforce Records label, and put us out on the road for our first real tour. With Marsha by his side, Jonny was a mentor, a manager, a label head, and a father figure to us all.... we would not be where we are today without the two of them. Sadly, we recently lost both Jonny and Marsha, just a little more than a year apart.

We'll be cooking up a special setlist for you full of songs from our days with Jonny and Marsha at Megaforce. Our main touring partner from that time, Raven, will be joining us to add to the celebration and bring back the memories.  Head out to Hard Rock Live and celebrate two heavy metal pioneers and champions with us!

The Zazula Family wanted to say a few words as well:

"The Zazula family is beyond humbled and appreciative that Metallica is playing this show in our parents' honor. The pride our parents felt toward every member of the Metallica community, from the band members to fans, was insurmountable. We can't wait to witness this full-circle moment that will undoubtedly cause some raucous head-banging in Rock N Roll Heaven. Horns up...at Hit the Lights...Thank you."

Tickets for the 7,000-seat theater show go on sale Friday, September 30 at 10 AM EDT.

A portion of the proceeds from this show will be donated in Jonny and Marsha's name to MusiCares, a safety net supporting the health and welfare of the music community offering preventive, emergency, and recovery programs to musicians and industry professionals. Additionally, All Within My Hands will once again be supporting Feeding South Florida with a donation following the show.
