Metallica celebrates Cliff Burton Day 2023 with a virtual event and charity. Cliff Burton Day 2023 is here, and fans of the late legendary Metallica bassist have much to look forward to this year.
Where and when will take place on Cliff Burton Day 2023?
This year, a virtual event will be held to honor Cliff Burton‘s life and legacy, and a charity t-shirt will also be released in his memory. Here’s a closer look at these two exciting initiatives. “Cliff Burton Day” will be celebrated on February 10, 2023, in honor of the late Metallica bassist. This event also takes place in his hometown of Castro Valley, California. Cliff Burton’s life will be commemorated in a virtual event hosted once again by Nicholas Gomez, with anecdotes from Cliff’s friends and family. The celebration will be live-streamed on YouTube on February 10 at 7 p.m. PT/10 p.m. ET.
Connie Burton, Lou Martin, Flemming Rasmussen of Sweet Silence Studios, Mike Overton of TRAUMA, John Gallagher of RAVEN, Deen Dell of VIO-LENCE, Brian Lew and Harald Oimoen from the film/book “Murder In The Front Row,” photographer Gene Ambo, Castro Valley hometown friends Joe Cabral, Judd of Judd’s Barn, and Tony Martin are also interviewed.
Their Cliff Burton stories and memories are not to be missed and are far too detailed to be given in a single program.
Burton also contributed to Metallica’s first three studio albums – “Kill ‘Em All,” “Ride The Lightning,” and “Master Of Puppets” — and co-wrote legendary songs including “Ride The Lightning”, “For Whom The Bell Tolls”, “Fade To Black”, “Creeping Death”, and “Master Of Puppets”.
The virtual event is a fitting tribute to Burton, who was not only an exceptional musician but also a beloved figure in the metal community. Hosted by Metallica themselves, this event will feature performances by various artists, as well as interviews and tributes to Burton. The virtual event will be live-streamed, allowing fans from all over the world to take part in the celebration.
The charity t-shirt is a special limited edition design, featuring a portrait of Burton and his signature on the back. The proceeds from the sale of these t-shirts will be donated to a music education charity, supporting the next generation of musicians. This is a great opportunity for fans to show their love for Burton and contribute to a worthy cause at the same time.
Official Cliff Burton Day T-shirts are available for pre-order for fans who wish to display their Burton pride for all to see. Last year’s official shirts included an inside joke about Cliff Burton and pancakes. Also, this year, t-shirts have a famous shot of Burton jamming on his bass with the words “Cliff Burton Day 2-10-2023” printed on the back.
