Metallica & The San Francisco Symphony’s Upcoming ‘S&M²’ Live Performances To Be Screened In Theaters


Metallica‘s forthcoming ‘S&M²‘ live performances with the San Francisco Symphony this September will be screened in theaters this October. The two shows themselves will take place at the Chase Center in San Francisco, CA on September 06th & 08th in honor of the 20th anniversary of their original 1999 ‘S&M‘ concerts. You can expect to find the upcoming live film of the two new shows screening in select theaters on October 09th with the band having the following to say of the matter:

“As many of you know, we were blown away by the response to S&M² when we announced the first – and then second – show this past spring. For those of you who can’t attend either of the gigs in the Bay Area, we still want to share this unique performance with you.

On October 9th, we are psyched to be bringing you S&M², a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the original S&M concerts, album, and film that also commemorates the grand opening of the state-of-the-art Chase Center, a historic addition to San Francisco’s waterfront. This one-night-only event will be shown in over 3,000 movie theaters around the world!

Recorded live on September 6th & 8th, S&M² will see us joining forces once again with the San Francisco Symphony, lead in part by legendary conductor Michael Tilson Thomas as he kicks off his final season. We’ll be performing several tracks from the original ’99 S&M release as well as symphonic versions of new songs released since then.

Movie theaters are still being confirmed and tickets will go on sale August 7th*, so visit to sign up for alerts, including more ticket on-sale details, and stay up to date on all the latest information about this one-night-only film event!”
