Metallica is playing a special club show in November honoring late Megaforce Records founders Jonny and Marsha Zazula.

The show is set for Sunday, November 6 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. In a statement on the show, the band said, “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.”

Additionally, the band said they’ll be “cooking up a special setlist” for the show honoring their Megaforce days. On top of that, the show will feature Raven, the main they often toured with in their early days.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 30 at 10 AM EDT at Metallica fan club members can access a special pre-sale starting Wednesday, September 28, with details available at
