Time to trade in the pick-up truck for a muscle car, drive-in concert movie goers.

After a series of country music shows, Metallica has signed on as the first major rock band to film a new performance to be shown in dozens of drive-in theaters across the country.

The thrash kings’ pre-taped live set will be screened Aug. 29.

Tickets go on sale Friday through Ticketmaster for $115 per vehicle, up to six people, similar to what Garth Brooks charged when he opened this drive-in concert movie series in June. There’s also a pre-sale beginning Wednesday through Metallica’s fan club. Tickets come with a download of the band’s new album, “S&M2,” another pairing with the San Francisco Symphony.

For some reason, Three Days Grace is also filming an opening set for the Aug. 29 event.
