Thank you for your interest! This event is SOLD OUT!

Left Bank Books presents an exclusive signing event with James Hetfield, vocalist, guitarist, co-founder, and songwriter of Metallica!

Join us for a signing line event in our store to celebrate the release of Messengers: The Guitars of James Hetfield.
Each ticket comes with ONE book and admit TWO people. Limit 2 per customer.
Must be present to guarantee signed copy.
This event is sold out and we will not be able to sell additional signed copies. You can order an unsigned copy from Left Bank Books, but it will not be signed.

James Hetfield shares his personal collection of treasured guitars and reveals the story and significance of each within his life and career as the front man, guitarist, and songwriter for Metallica.


"From penning influential albums Kill 'Em All and Ride the Lightning on his original white OGV to resolutely reflecting on his harrowing pyrotechnics accident that left handprints burned into his double-neck Montreal, Hetfield masterfully chronicles over forty different guitars and the respective gear from Metallica's forty-year history and all of the memories, mishaps, and eccentricities that come with them. The end result, to put it simply, rocks." --Entertainment Weekly


Can I take a photo with James?

No. You may take candid photos from the line but there will not be posed photos. We want to make sure that everyone gets an opportunity to get their book signed, so the line needs to move at a steady pace.


What can I bring?

Backpacks, coolers, hard-sided bags, luggage, and any bag over 16"x 16" are strictly prohibited. James will only be signing copies of the book that come with your ticket. No memorabilia will be signed or allowed into the signing.

Is the event accessible?

The event is wheelchair accessible. For other accessibility needs, please email info@left-bank.com.


There are several paid parking lots in the immediate area. There is also metered parking in the neighborhood. Be aware that they do regularly monitor and ticket for expired parking.

What time can I line up?

Check in will start at NOON for the event. You can line up before that, but we are in a residential neighborhood so please be aware of neighbors. The store opens at 10am.
