Metallica’s Lars Ulrich Promises ‘Vivid’ Pre–Super Bowl Show
So when it’s all done, and Ulrich is watching the big game the next day, who will he be rooting for, the Denver Broncos or the Carolina Panthers? “The Seahawks!” Ulrich says, laughing. “But I don’t think that will do much good. You got me on that one. Sporting events have the tendency to be a lot more interesting when you actually care who wins.
“Last year, that was a pretty fucking awesome football game,” Ulrich continues. “And three years ago with the 49ers, where they came down to the last play, was insane. This year, who knows? I hope that people find the city of San Francisco a great host, and I hope that it plays out the way people want it to. I’ll be checking out the commercials.” He laughs.
